Doing Business in the UAE
From being a tiny tear drop on the world map to being the most progressive centre in the world for commerce, trade and tourism, the UAE has come a long way. With the prestigious World Expo 2020 around the corner, all eyes will be on Dubai and its wave makers over the next few years. Dubai was named the Middle East and North African region’s safest city in the 2016 Mercer Quality of Living Index. Abu Dhabi ranked a shade below Dubai. Abu Dhabi has also been the first port of call for globally renowned international artistes and entertainers for the last decade or so. The UAE as a whole has benefited on the crest of popularity of Abu Dhabi and Dubai as two of the world’s most preferred destinations for tourism and relocation.
Nestled in the following pages is a brief overview of the economic and regulatory landscape of the UAE, along with nuggets of information on some of the pearls on the UAE like the towering Burj Khalifa, the grand Dubai World Central Airport or Abu Dhabi's signature entertainment destination, Yas Island, jostling for space with useful information on what it is like to do business in the UAE.
We, at PKF in the UAE hope this booklet will help in providing readers with an insight on setting up businesses in the UAE.
