The Dubai Media Council today announced the launch of ‘One Media Dubai’, a one-stop-shop for Emirati, Arab and foreign media professionals and organisations to obtain a range of exclusive services in the emirate.

According to state news agency WAM, the initiative streamlines the provision of services to media companies and professionals.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, chairman of the Dubai Media Council said, “The launch will add significant new value to the media community in Dubai and support efforts to realise the vision of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to reinforce the emirate’s status as a leading global media hub.”

“The initiative will also further enhance the rich, supportive, growth-friendly environment that Dubai offers creatives, innovators and other professionals in the media industry. By providing a range of enabling services to media professionals, the initiative also contributes to Dubai’s vision to transform itself into the world’s best city to live and work,” he added.

‘One Media Dubai’ will support professionals working in local, regional and international media institutions. It also complements the Dubai Press Club’s objectives to nurture the development of the media community in Dubai.

Key partners in the ‘One Media Dubai’ initiative include the Media Regulatory Office, Dubai Media City, Federal Authority of Identity and Citizenship, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai, Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism, Knowledge and Human Development Authority, Emirates NBD, Dubai Design District and Etisalat.

Mona Al Marri, vice chairperson and MD of Dubai Media Council, said: “The one-stop-shop for media professionals and organisations is part of the Dubai Media Council’s mandate to develop the sector further and foster an environment where professionals can excel. The initiative is also one of a series of strategic projects and programmes launched by the Club to support the media sector’s development locally, regionally and internationally,”

Services offered in the initiative’s first phase include media and commercial licensing, office leasing, visas and immigration, banking, tourism and hospitality, education consulting, residential real estate, and telecom services.

Dubai’s media community has grown remarkably over the years. The emirate is now home to more than 4,000 media organisations and thousands of professionals working in different media disciplines.
