Dubai Chamber of Commerce, one of the three chambers operating under Dubai Chambers, has launched the Printing & Publishing business group to boost the sector’s competitiveness and support its members in navigating a rapidly evolving media landscape.
The new Printing & Publishing business group is part of the chamber’s plans to increase the number of business groups that represent economic sectors and activities in Dubai. The group acts as a representative and a reliable advocate for the printing and publishing sector and plays a crucial role in recommending policy changes to improve the sector’s competitiveness and attractiveness while promoting international best practices and supporting economic growth.
“As the world transitions to a digital-first economy, particularly post-COVID-19, people now consume information through digital channels. There is no doubt that the demand for print remains strong. It is however important for businesses within the printing and publishing sector to collaborate in addressing industry challenges. This business group will play an instrumental role in promoting and supporting the sector’s growth and is a key component of our business community as it contributes to advancing commercial and investment activity in the emirate.”
Founding member, Mr. Lakshmanan Ganapathy, General Manager of Al Ghurair Printing & Publishing, stated that “I am honored to have supported the setting up of this business group and am very excited to connect and collaborate with my peers. Initiatives such as these are very important as they help us gain more knowledge and insight to navigate the changing business landscape.”
Dubai Chamber of Commerce plans to increase the number of economic sectors and activities represented by business groups to 100 by March this year.
