For a brighter future
The basis for cooperation and ways of benefiting from the commercial and investment opportunities offered by the UAE, the Emirate of Dubai and the free zone were explored by the two sides. This initiative is in line with the Memorandum of Understanding. It is recently with the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce by the Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority.
Members of the Israeli delegation attended the presentation. It outlined the most important political programs and measures led by the Free Zone. They addressed areas of possible collaboration between the two sides during the presentation. The ventures include Dubai Commerce City, the region’s first e-commerce free zone. It also aims to boost Dubai’s status as a regional e-commerce Center and to be home to the e-commerce infrastructure.
The Israeli delegation showed the facilities and resources offered to companies in the UAE by the Israeli infrastructure. This would also improve the advantages provided to companies operating in the free zone. The resources are going to promote the activities of businesses in the region and around the world. This is beside their international growth efforts.
