Establishment of Emirates Trade Bank in Dubai
(12 October 2016)
Establishment of Emirates Trade Bank, a significant step towards transformation of Dubai as the Capital of Islamic Economy


The Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre (DIEDC) is supportive of the initiative from the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai to launch Emirates Trade Bank. His Highness, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council has nominated a founding committee comprising H.E. Mohammed Al Gergawi (Chairman), H.E. Sami Al Qamzi, H.E. Essa Kazim, Mr. Hussain Al Qemzi, Dr. Ahmed Aljanahi and Mr. Saed Alawadi, for the establishment of the bank. 
The founding committee is in advanced discussions with the Central Bank of the UAE regarding provisional approval for an Islamic wholesale banking license for Emirates Trade Bank, specializing in international trade and commodity financing. Emirates Trade Bank will be the first of its kind global Shari’a compliant bank exclusively offering integrated trade and international commodity financing solutions, through leveraging and mobilizing the infrastructure and logistics ecosystem of the UAE. The bank will fulfil Dubai’s strategic goal of supporting the Islamic financial sector and integrating investments from this domain towards doubling UAE trade flows (about AED 1.4 trillion in 2014) by 2020.

“The UAE in general and Dubai in particular are privileged to have a diversified, open, and flexible economy capable of addressing international and regional challenges. Emirates Trade Bank is set to reap synergies from the strategic positioning and advanced technical and logistics’ infrastructure of Dubai, in its efforts to finance international trade and commodity flows, particularly through the UAE,” said Sami Al Qamzi, Director General of Dubai Department of Economic Development and Vice Chairman of the Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre (DIEDC).

DIEDC will continue to support initiatives aimed at transforming Dubai into the Capital of the Islamic Economy. The UAE and the Emirate of Dubai have always been the leaders and pioneers in the Islamic finance industry, with the establishment of the first Islamic bank in the world in the nineteen seventies. The establishment of Emirates Trade Bank will further enhance the esteemed status of the UAE and the Emirate of Dubai in the commercial and financial landscape.
