Chairman's message

Founded in 1971, the UAE was only thirty years ago a small and underdeveloped country. The UAE, with its rapidly developing infrastructure, investor-friendly policies and political stability, is today undoubtedly one of the most attractive business destinations in the world. Moreover, since its formation the UAE has enjoyed a political stability that led millions of people from all around the world to come. The UAE counts today more than 200 nationalities. We are a country open to the world and tolerance is a key value for us.

All these these transformations in only few decades have occurred thanks to the leadership of the late HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan al Nahyan. His vision and legacy are today carried on by HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi and HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashed Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.


We are drawing on the potential offered by the UAE and mainly Abu Dhabi as one of the world’s leading and fastest growing business hubs.

GDC Partners has been built upon the idea of bridging the UAE as well as the GCC region to the rest of the world. We have a progressive and forward-thinking approach, striving for innovation and enhanced efficiency. We are committed to offering to international companies tailored made solutions to establish them in the country and make them among the leaders thanks to our deep market knowledge and experience.


GDC Partners gives priority to cultural understanding as ways of doing business are different in each part of the world. Taking into account this difference is crucial to make our partnership a great success. With all GDC Partners' team, I will support you to navigate this unfamiliar but exciting and promising environment of the Emirati and Gulf markets.

GDC Partners benefits from the full support of Tamalluk, my business development company based in Abu Dhabi and that has successfully built in the last decades partnerships with some of the most reputable companies in the world to deliver sustained growth and long-term value.


His Excellency Mubarak Ahmed Bin Hamoodah
