A glimpse of our organizers
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.
DEWA was formed on 1 January, 1992, by a decree issued by the late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum to merge Dubai Electricity Company and Dubai Water Department, which previously operated independently of each other. Both organisations were established in 1959 through the foresight of the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, then Ruler of Dubai, as government supported bodies with the objective of making an adequate and reliable supply of electricity and water available to the people of Dubai.
On 12 April 2022, the shares of DEWA (PJSC) started trading on the Dubai Financial Market (DFM). It is the largest company on the DFM, with a market capitalisation of AED125 billion ($34 billion). The wide interest from local and international investors, affirms DEWA’s position as a globally leading sustainable innovative corporation. It also underlines the attractiveness of Dubai as a global capital market.
