The briefing seminar on the new criteria of the Dubai Human Development Award (DHDA) recently conducted by the Department of Economic Development (DED), generated a positive response with more than 60 representatives from some of the major private sector companies in Dubai attending the event.
Most of the attendees expressed keen interest to participate in the award, which is a strategic initiative by the DED to further the cause of national human development. The DED has set September 30 as the last date for receiving the submission document for the DHDA. The department will be conducting another seminar on July 23 to provide further assistance to the participating companies. In addition, a workshop will be held on July 29 to enable participating companies to get first-hand experience of writing a professional submission document.
DED was established in March 1992, with the objective to organize, regulate and boost trade and industry within the Emirate of Dubai. The DED has moulded its mission of building a futuristic establishment, in accordance with the vision of the Government of Dubai and in the light of globalization and the requirements of a digital economy. One of its key functions is to encourage local and foreign investments in commercial and industrial projects, and create the appropriate environment for investors. — (menareport.com)
