Understanding the UAE’s free zones

The United Arab Emirates has long been known as one of the trading capitals of the world – ideally positioned between the vast and emerging markets of America, Europe, Asia and North Africa. But it has not always been that way.

After the discovery of oil in the mid-1960s, the UAE began its transformation into a financial epicentre. For the first 20 years of this transformation, however, the city’s relatively small population and reliance on oil money meant it lacked the economic diversity to fully take advantage of its position on the world stage.

The powers that be across the UAE quickly decided they had to take steps in order to counteract this problem. And so they began to diversify the economy by making the region attractive to a wider array of industries – essentially opening up the country to a much greater influx of foreign investment by making the investment climate more attractive.

One step that played a big role in this was the development of the UAE free zone concept. The original free zone opened in the 1908s, setting the template for the many that followed, and today there are almost 40 across the UAE.
