Dubai is the second easiest place in the world to obtain building permits

UAE - November 5, 2017

According to the World Bank, the Emirate of Dubai is ranked as the second easiest place in the world to obtain building permits, whereas it ranked in the first place for the Middle East, according to Dubai Municipality.

It is worth mentioning that the Municipality was also praised for its development of quality management in the construction process by emphasising the qualifications of consultants reviewing construction plans, issuing licences, and reducing the time taken to issue them.

Commenting on the news, Eng Hussain Nasser Lootah, director general of DM, said: “The UAE’s performance in this year’s World Bank report is the result of days and months of work and serious commitment from various federal and local government agencies and institutions, and their cooperation with the competitiveness strategy management team of the Federal Authority for Competitiveness and Statistics.”

“Focus has also been given to the quality axis, which contributed directly to obtaining higher grades that qualified the country in progressing to the second place in the world,” Nasser Lootah added.
