Launched in 2004 and built somewhere “in the middle of the desert” at the time, Dubai Industrial City (DIC) is now one of the largest business hubs dedicated to the manufacturing industry in Dubai. Now, the free zone is called Dubai Industrial Park and during the years it has suffered multiple changes in the regulatory environment to come with attractive offers for foreign investors. In 2012, Dubai Industrial City became the first free zone to offer land for sale outside the free zone to foreign investors. However, these are not the only incentives for overseas entrepreneurs, as the taxation of companies in Dubai Industrial City is quite advantageous.
Our Dubai company formation agents can assist foreign investors seeking to open a company in DIC.
