National Defense Companies Council (NDCC) was established in 2014 to act as a backbone for national defense industry and to create channels for an effective communication between the decision makers and the local defense contractors in a way that will serve the interests of the country.

The establishment of this Council coincides with the economic diversification arrangements taking place in our country, the development of the private sector and the expansion of its roles and priorities.

The establishment of the Council also comes to achieve Tawazun Economic Council goals, which was founded in 1992 with a view to achieve visions of a sustainable economic and social development of the United Arab Emirates, focusing on procedures to contribute to the construction of industrial efficiencies and the development of projects in areas of defense and aviation.
