In essence, the areas of activity on which the DDIA focuses include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Matching Investors with investment opportunities: The DDIA is keen on attracting and encouraging local investment through founding and supporting sizeable projects in Dubai.
* Multinational Corporations: The DDIA shows particular interest in global multinationals and aims to facilitate their set-ups in Dubai through "comprehensive value-added offering[s]."
* The DDIA is a main provider of Government and Convenience services to major investors and corporations with the aim of facilitating the establishment of operations, easing legal clearances, and delivering world-class support services (Dubai Development & Investment Authority, 2004).
This Regulatory Governmental Authority, according to Saeed Al Muntafiq--Director General--has as a mission, among other missions, diversifying Dubai's economy so that "70% of its GDP [comes] from the service sector." Besides DDIA's "macro strategy role," it is also concerned with the development of several projects of high caliber and complexity.
Al Muntafiq asserts that "the DDIA is not a Free Zone," and thereby creates no "conflict of interest with other free zones." He adds that the DDIA, which aims at naming Dubai a "global gateway," is "part of the Dubai Government and can issue [its own] regulations and make laws" (Cooper, 2003).
