In the UAE, the first Free Zone at Jebel Ali came into existence in 1985 and provided international businesses and corporations a hub, which connected the East and the West and expanded the horizons of their operations. Today there are more than two dozen Free Zones only in Dubai with over 40 free zones all over the UAE providing top class facilities and infrastructure for doing business and most importantly are industry specific in nature. This booklet contains relevant information about these zones.

We, at PKF in the UAE hope this booklet will help in providing readers with an insight on setting up businesses in the UAE Free Zones.
