Dubai Airport Freezone – The Place to Be in the UAE

Dubai Airport Freezone – The Place to Be in the UAE

This week, Dearin & Associates hosted a delegation of senior representatives from the Dubai Airport Freezone (DAFZA), in Sydney. The objective of the the visit was to enhance and build on the United Arab Emirates’ strong economic ties with Australia and to highlight the benefits of investing in Dubai, specifically DAFZA.

This is a timely visit; In 2011-12 two-way merchandise trade between Australia and the UAE was worth over USD 5.9 billion. Of this, Australian exports to the UAE were nearly USD 2.22 billion, while imports were nearly USD 3.73 billion, including crude petroleum imports worth USD 3.19 billion.

Mr Jamal Bin Marghoob, Director of the Marketing & Corporate Communications Department, DAFZA says that:

“As a facilitator of international trade, DAFZA actively works to attract Australian companies through various marketing activities. As a result, we have found that the number of Australia companies present in DAFZA has steadily increased, and there are currently nine Australian companies based out of the Free Zone.”

Well-known Australian brands, including Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), Globally Fresh, and Barnetts Middle East, are currently based in DAFZA, which is conveniently located next to Dubai International Airport.

Managing Director, Cynthia Dearin spoke to Jamal bin Marghoob, to find out why Australian companies should consider setting up there.
