Since its establishment, Dubai has grown into a global economic powerhouse, home to world-class businesses.

Among the most exciting emerging markets worldwide, the city has successfully leveraged its strategic geographic location at the convergence between Asia, Africa, and Europe. In addition, it is the home to one of the busiest airports and maritime ports worldwide.

Dubai’s remarkable economic transformation results from the UAE’s diversification strategy, which aims to build a vibrant economy that will long outlast oil supplies. The city’s network of economic free zones and the development of the aviation market are paramount to the fulfillment of this goal. Today, Dubai Integrated Economic Zones Authority (DIEZ) contributes an impressive 5% to Dubai’s GDP.

Together, these conditions make for attractive investment opportunities for those businesses keen to take advantage of an ecosystem based on rich human capital, innovative transformation, and state-of-art services and products. Offering unparalleled solutions for global companies, attractive incentives, digital connectivity, and holistic business support services, DIEZ is the perfect platform to take advantage of the high-grown opportunities available in Dubai, the UAE, the Middle East region, and beyond.
