D33 PrioritiesThe Dubai Economic Agenda 2033 focuses on a set of key ten-year priorities, including raising the value of the industrial sector and promoting the growth of exports, contributing to sustainable economic growth, and achieving self-sufficiency in manufacturing, and other key sectors and industries. Supporting Dubai’s emphasis on future-focused growth, the Agenda aims to increase Dubai’s economic productivity by 50% through innovation and digital solutions. Another specific priority of the D33 Agenda is to position Dubai among the top three international destinations for tourism and business by providing a globally competitive environment for business sustainability and driving down the cost of doing business.

- Adding 400 cities as key trade partners to Dubai’s trade map
- Dubai Economic Corridors 2033 initiative, which will enhance existing foreign trade relations with Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia
