Dubai municipality launches new platform for pvt sector investors

Dubai Municipality has introduced an innovative platform to enable investment opportunities for the private sector valued at c. Dhs576.3m.

The new platform provides a streamlined and transparent channel for the evaluation and approval of ideas and proposals, reported the state news agency, WAM.

It will help private sector investors submit proposals for joint projects with Dubai Municipality or apply for existing collaborative investment opportunities offered by the organisation.

The new platform is part of the municipality’s continuous efforts to enhance its procedures and provide a unified window for scoping and establishing partnerships with the private sector.

Dubai Municipality raises awareness of investment opportunities

Najib Mohammed Saleh, director of Commercial Affairs and Investment Department at Dubai Municipality, said, “Dubai Municipality’s new online platform raises the visibility of investment opportunities offered to the private sector and efficiently manages all aspects of the investment process, including proposal submission, evaluation of opportunities, approvals and signing of contracts.

“The platform is consistent with the municipality’s belief that the private sector is a valuable partner in ensuring the best possible utilisation of its diverse assets. The initiative supports our broader strategy to contribute to realising the goals of the Dubai Economic Agenda D33 to consolidate the emirate’s status as one of the world’s top three cities and raise its global competitiveness over the next decade.

“The platform provides investors the tools needed to evaluate investment opportunities proposed by the municipality and apply for them as well as suggest new investments. The platform also facilitates the speedy renewal of contracts,” he added.

The platform features an electronic system that enables both domestic and foreign investors to monitor the implementation and documentation of the investment process. The online platform significantly reduces the steps and time involved in application, evaluation and approval procedures.

The easy-to-access platform seeks to provide opportunities for private sector investors, especially young entrepreneurs, to develop their projects and ideas and take advantage of the attractive investment avenues offered by the municipality, reported WAM.

The platform will help the various organisational units and committees related to the investment process simplify governance procedures. It will also generate reports on investment opportunities and revenues, and provide accurate and up-to-date data that can support decision-makers.

The platform will help the municipality raise its efficiency, efficiently utilise resources and maximise yields and revenues.

Investors both in the UAE and overseas can take advantage of opportunities displayed on the platform.

The new platform can be accessed on Dubai Municipality’s website.

In other news, in January, Dubai Municipality introduced a new digital platform to increase environmental awareness of the emirate’s natural reserves.

The reserves, which cover a total area of 1,297 square kilometres, account for 31 per cent of the city’s total area.

The platform aims to encourage eco-friendly, sustainable tourism in Dubai’s natural reserve zones, offering information and services linked to the reserves on one platform.

In March, Dubai Municipality launched the Happiness Vehicle initiative for senior citizens and People of Determination to assist them in applying for the Municipality’s smart electronic services.

Under this initiative, senior citizens and People of Determination can book the vehicle by specifying the required service and their location, following which an employee from the municipality will visit their residence to help them with the service.

The initiative helps them to swiftly and conveniently conduct their transactions.
