Director General’s Message

Mona Ghanem Al Marri

Over the last two decades, Dubai has successfully laid the foundation for sustainable economic growth and emerged as one of the world’s fastest growing cities. This extraordinary growth has put Dubai in the global news spotlight. With increasing interest from across the world to learn more about its ambitious initiatives, the Emirate has attracted massive media attention.

The Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO) provides a range of communication services that meet the growing demand for accurate and reliable news and information on the Emirate of Dubai.  The GDMO is also the main facilitator of information about the official activities and announcements of UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and the Deputy Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Communication is a vital enabler of the government’s vision and its policies and programmes. Our strong liaison and working relationships with all divisions of the Government of Dubai allows us to contribute significantly to its strategic communication planning. Our ability to provide high-quality support is driven by our dynamic and highly skilled team, backed by our high-quality technology infrastructure.

As the official source of information and news on Dubai and its leadership, the DGMO maintains a high level of professionalism in its interactions with both regional and international media. We place a strong emphasis on developing solid relationships with the media not only to perform our responsibilities well but also to make sure we can understand and meet the media’s requirements effectively.

As the government’s communication needs evolve, our teams will continue to further develop their capabilities to service these needs. Apart from consolidating our capabilities in using traditional communications vehicles, we are particularly keen to further develop our expertise in new media. By conveying an accurate picture of the government’s aspirations and achievements, we seek to continue communicating Dubai’s true voice to the world.
