The Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ADCCI) recently announced the launch of an Advocacy Hub to support the private sector, further contributing to the robustness of the Emirate’s economy on local, regional, and global levels.

Through the hub, businesses will be able to communicate easily with government entities, giving them the opportunity to present their ideas and recommendations on policies and legislation, as well as propose solutions on issues concerning the business environment.

“The launch of the Advocacy Hub initiative is an embodiment of our wise leadership’s directives, aimed at supporting the private sector,” His Excellency Abdulla Mohamed Al Mazrui, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Chamber, tells StartupScene. “Its purpose is to strengthen cooperation and build a true partnership between the public and private sectors, with the goal of preserving and developing the achievements made in Abu Dhabi in the field of comprehensive development.”

The launch includes two phases. In the first phase, businesses from all sectors will be invited to discuss the creation of Communal Working Groups in various economic activities to address business interests, and further boost competitiveness of the private sector. The Chamber will also be able to work closely with the private sector to learn about their struggles to present sustainable solutions for their growth and development.

In the second phase, 40 Communal Working Groups will be formed to represent the city’s diverse economic activities and pave the way for discussions and dialogue between businesses and government entities.

Besides enhancing the role of the private sector in Abu Dhabi, this initiative also aims to strengthen the Emirate’s position as the preferred destination for doing business by 2025. “This will be achieved by affording the private sector with opportunities to participate in decision-making and contribute to the formulation of legislations that support the growth and prosperity of the business sector,” Al Mazrui adds. “The initiative focuses on identifying and discussing key challenges, as well as the most prominent solutions and ideas to enhance the prosperity of the different business sectors in Abu Dhabi.”
