The state-owned Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), which has been proposed as the diamond trading centre in Dubai has begun to receive its member occupants. Around 100 offices between the third to 20th floors of the 65-storey Almas Tower, have been handed over the keys to their offices.
The Tower has been built to accommodate the Dubai Diamond Exchange and as such hi-tech security systems and secure vaulting facilities, have been provided for its occupants. The remaining offices are expected to be handed over the next couple of months.
According to DMCC executive chairman Ahmed bin Sulayem, “The completion of Almas Tower is a significant step towards DMCC's objective of establishing a dedicated market place, providing industry-specific market infrastructure and full range of facilities for the diamond trade in Dubai”.
