Doing business in the UAE
The United Arab Emirates is situated in the East of the Arab world. It overlooks the Gulf of Oman to the East and the Arabian Gulf to the North. The Arabian Gulf and Gulf of Oman are linked by the Straits of Hormuz.
The laws and regulations that govern foreign investment in the United Arab Emirates are largely conducive to foreign investment. Although important tariffs in the UAE stand at 5 percent, more than 75 percent of imports stillenter the country duty-free, and there are no tariffs on exports. Each Emirate has its own customs authority, while a national committee formulates general policies.
Dubai, the commercial hub of UAE has attracted investment by setting up tax-free zones, including a financial services business park. It also opened up its real estate sector to foreign investment in 2002. The UAE stood fifth globally in the ‘freedom to trade internationally’ category, as compared to ranks of 18 and 25 secured by Germany and the US, respectively.
Petroleum dominates the economy of the UAE and major industrial development is also petroleum related. However, to diversify the economy and attract investment in terms of expertise and capital, the governments in individual Emirates - Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah, Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, Ajman, Sharjah, and Umm al Quwain - seek to provide an attractive business environment. Some of the principle features of economic and business environment in the UAE include:

UAE Free Trade Zones are among the strong wheels that drive this country's economic growth.
