UAE is the only country in the Middle East where a big number of Free Trade Zones and Free Industrial Zones are available for investors who wish to gain more from their investment. The first Free Zone formed was Jebel Ali , Dubai, in 1985 which witnessed a tremendous growth in the years to come by way of increased number of investors. Many have established their offices, factories or warehouses and invested millions which in turn had given them huge returns from the UAE Free Zones. That is precisely the reason why even more foreign investors are being attracted nowadays to the UAE Free Zones.

Currently, over 12.000 companies, many of which being major brands, operate under the UAE Free Zones Authority.
