Indian services and consulting company Wipro Limited opened its Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (APMEA) strategic market unit headquarters in Dubai, the company said in a statement.

Crown Prince of Dubai and chairman of the Executive Council, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, said that the establishment of Wipro’s new facility in Dubai reflects the emirate’s growing profile as a global hub for the world’s leading information technology companies. 

Located in One Central at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the newly opened headquarters will lead Wipro’s expansion and investments across the UAE and APMEA.

The new base will address the business, technology, and transformation agendas of clients in focus sectors such as financial services, retail, telecom, energy and utilities, and the public sector. 

Wipro began its operations in the Middle East in UAE in 2001. The APMEA strategic market unit generates around $1.5 billion in revenue for Wipro and employs over 30,000 personnel.

“Dubai is a gateway to the world. Its progressive government, multicultural workforce, and business-friendly policies make it a great fit for us as we expand our footprint across the APMEA regions,” Rishad Premji, executive chairman, Wipro Limited, said in a press statement.

The APMEA headquarters will include a co-innovation space, where strategic partners, including AWS, Microsoft, HPE, Informatica, Palo Alto Networks, SAS, and Snowflake, will collaborate with Wipro to co-create joint solutions that address the evolving needs of key sectors and technologies.
