As the UAE government continues its ambitious economic reform programmes, SMEs play an increasingly important role in national growth. For example, as of August 2017, more than 94% of companies operating in the UAE were SMEs, employing around 86% of the private-sector workforce, according to the UAE Ministry of Economy. In Dubai alone, smaller businesses account for almost 95% of companies, employing 42% of the workforce and contributing around 40% of the emirate’s GDP.
