Dubai World Central Free Zone


Company formation in Dubai World Central free zone(Dubai South)

The creation of Dubai World Central (DWC) was the initiative of the government of Dubai to blow up the economy of Dubai and turn the emirate into a leading global business, trade and aviation center.

DWC consists of eight areas: aviation, logistics, Al Maktoum International Airport, residential, humanitarian, entertainment, commercial and exhibition, which create an exciting platform for the prosperity of companies. Many investors opt for Dubai World Central to create an enterprise due to its convenient location and the number of significant advantages.

Dubai is an important connecting point between East and West. DWC Free Zone strengthens Dubai's leading position as a logistics and shopping center. It uses the Jebel Ali Port (the largest container port between Singapore and Rotterdam) and easily connects it to Al Maktoum International Airport through the Dubai Special Logistics Corridor.

DWC Dubai has a single customs zone, reducing the time spent on the ground and accelerating the flow of goods of the air-air/sea-air type. With direct access to major trans-Emirate road networks, the DWC Free Zone is a true multimodal logistics platform providing an unprecedented level of connectivity, speed and efficiency.
