and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in priority sectors requiring financing and investment.

Companies and entrepreneurs will also be offered training, counselling and guidance for UAE

Maktoum, Vice President of UAE and Ruler of #Dubai has already allocated Dh30 billion for

financing SMEs and to help create 25,000 industrial jobs.
