Roads & Transport Authority (RTA)

Since Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities in today’s world, making the provision of high quality infrastructure facilities absolutely imperative, and since providing an advanced transport network for the people of Dubai has been high on the government’s agenda, which is evident from its initiatives to enhance the public transport facilities and improve roads across the emirate to make travel safer and smoother, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) was formed by the decree number 17 for the year 2005.

RTA is responsible for planning and providing the requirements of transport, roads & traffic in the Emirate of Dubai, and between Dubai and other Emirates of the UAE, neighboring countries in order to provide an effective & an integrated transport system capable of achieving Dubai’s vision & serving the vital interests of the Emirate.


Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA)

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) was formed on 1 January, 1992, by a decree issued by the late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum to take over and merge the Dubai Electricity Company and the Dubai Water Department that had been operating independently for several years until then. Both these organisations were established in 1959 through the foresight and initiative of His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the late Ruler of Dubai, as government-supported bodies with the objective of making available to the people of Dubai an adequate and reliable supply of electricity and water.

Today, after nearly six decades, DEWA is an inspiring success story known for its efficiency and reliability in every facet of its operations. Constant planning and forecasting to meet the growing demands of the customer has always been DEWA’s well entrenched philosophy. Owing to this policy, DEWA has come a long way in serving the customers and thereby making its own contributions to the economic growth of Dubai.

Today DEWA employees a workforce of over 10,000 employees who constantly work to ensure that both the quantity and quality of services provided are of the highest standards in consistency and reliability. In Dubai, DEWA provides over 725,000 customers with electricity and water.

This expansion is ongoing to manage growing demand for electricity and water, and DEWA continues to maintain its corporate structure and functioning in the most professional and advanced ways, to ensure its continued success both now and in the future. For the next 5 years DEWA will focus on Smart Grids, Research and Development, Renewables and Efficiency.
