Umm Al Quwain Free Zone

An attractive area for the development of medium, small and micro businesses in the UAE is the Umm Al Quwain free economic zone. Back in 1987, the Ahmed Bin Rashid Port and Free Zone SEZ was created in the emirate of Umm Al Quwain, which in 2014 received the new name Umm Al Quwain Free Trade Zone (UAQ FTZ). And although it was originally intended for trading and consulting activities, today other types of activities are allowed to operate in this free zone. The UAQ FTZ free zone is located close to the international airports of Dubai and Sharjah, and major seaports, which provides it with convenient communication with the world.
