Gamechanger Advocacy Hub: Are you ready to revolutionise your business?

The Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ADCCI) just introduced a new initiative for businesses in the UAE – the Advocacy Hub. In the following article we will elaborate on what the Advocacy Hub provides and why you can brace yourself for a journey of economic empowerment and innovation. 

What exactly is the Advocacy Hub?

First and foremost the intention of founding the Advocacy Hub is to facilitate communication between businesses and government agencies, bringing two worlds closer together. In the first phase of the launch, businesses from various commercial, investment, and industrial sectors will be invited to join and propose the formulation of Communal working groups in various economic activities, addressing the interests of businesses and enhancing their competitive capabilities. 

How will you benefit from the Advocacy Hub?

For businesses located in the UAE, the Hub offers several potential benefits for you and your business: 

  • Policy Advocacy: Through the Hub a platform is created where businesses come together to voice their opinions, concerns, and needs regarding government policies and regulations. This opens the possibility for you to raise your voice and share your ideas. 
  • Networking and Collaboration: Being part of the Hub will open the opportunity for you to  network among businesses, collaborate, share insights, and exchange best practices, which can lead to mutually beneficial partnerships and opportunities.
  • Problem-Solving: The initiative enables businesses to address common challenges collectively, leveraging the resources, expertise, and influence of the private sector to find solutions and drive positive change.
  • Government Engagement: Through the Advocacy Hub, businesses can engage more effectively with government entities, providing feedback, input, and recommendations on policies and regulations that affect them, thus fostering a more contributive business environment.

Overall, the goal is to leverage collective influence and advocacy to shape policies and regulations in a way that fosters a conducive business environment, promotes innovation and growth, and addresses the needs of the business community.
