The UAE, and Dubai in particular, has been branded as the leading regional trading hub in the Middle East, and is now a truly international business centre of global significance.
Why Dubai? Whether your focus is on trading, manufacturing, tourism or services, Dubai will provide you with the platform you need to take your business to a new level.

With such a strategic location, falling on the Far East and Europe on the east-west trading routes and between the former Soviet Union and Africa on the north-south axis, if you are a trader, your opportunities are endless. As this strategic location is also home to one of the busiest transit passenger airports in the world, whether you operate within the tourism or services industry, you will find that Dubai can boost your business. Think about expanding now.
Dubai’s opportunities are reflected not just in its regulatory environment, which is open and liberal, but also in the local business community’s thorough familiarity with international commercial practices. Secure and strong onshore and offshore banking systems in the UAE also offer you the chance to use and grow your money as you wish.
Apart from its attractions as a regional business expansion location, Dubai also delivers excellent facilities for establishing manufacturing and distribution operations. In the Freezones, overseas companies are permitted to set up wholly-owned ventures and can enjoy an array of incentives, including exemption from import duties and tax-free business expansion.
In addition to the economic advantages of using Dubai as a business base, international businessmen can be assured that the city offers a superb quality of life for themselves and their families. Dubai is not only pluralistic and welcoming, but it is extremely safe and practically crime-free.

Sporting and leisure interests are well catered for and Dubai’s top class international hotels offer a wide range of dining, entertainment and nightlife.
