Dubai beckons with wealth of business opportunities


BOASTING an economy which is diverse and not overly reliant on one business sector, Dubai is the commercial capital of the United Arab Emirates. With more than 30 Free Zones and special economic zones established by the Government of Dubai to promote trade and investment in and around the Emirate, specifically and the UAE in general, Dubai is favoured as one of the investment destinations worldwide.

In addition to being a duty free city, Dubai’s Free Zones offer a wealth of opportunities and benefits as well as several reasons why companies would prefer to set up there, including the advantage of 100 per cent foreign ownership; efficient transport and distribution facilities; flexible investment options; full administrative and recruitment support; no customs duties; a renewable guarantee of no taxation as well as abundant and inexpensive energy

Dubai FDI, part of the Department of Economic Development in Dubai, provides essential information and invaluable support to foreign businesses looking to invest in Dubai’s thriving economy and take advantage of its global strategic importance.

Dubai FDI guides, advises and provides practical help on all aspects of business decisions and management, from determining the best legal structures to identifying investment opportunities and introducing a vast network of government and private sector contacts. From planning to implementation and beyond, Dubai FDI has the expertise, resources and knowledge to ensure a smooth journey to commercial success.

In conjunction with Dubai FDI, the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), invites interested parties to attend a complimentary Dubai Business Breakfast presentation in Johannesburg or Cape Town.
