U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council Releases New Guide to Help Companies Do Business in the United Arab EmiratesSeptember 20, 2016
(Washington)–The U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council’s new guide to ‘Doing Business in the United Arab Emirates’ provides U.S. company executives with the essential information they need when considering operations and business partnerships in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.). “In publishing this guide for the first time, we hope to ‘pull back the curtain’ on local business structures and customs, and answer some of the most pressing questions about the U.A.E., its government structure, how to set up a business onshore or in a free zone, tax regulations, labor laws, and much more,” said Danny Sebright, President of the U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council.
As the premier regional business hub, the U.A.E. has experienced exceptional growth in recent years, and consistently strives to reinforce its position as the commercial, cultural, and economic leader in the GCC and beyond. The U.A.E.’s progressive society and policies make the country an ideal location to set up a business designed to access markets in the Middle East, Africa, or Indian sub-continent.
For the past seven years, the U.A.E. has been the single largest export market for the U.S. in the greater Middle East & North Africa Region – and even surpassed India in the last two years. As of 2015, the U.A.E. is America’s largest source of foreign investment from the Middle East, and its seventh fastest-growing source of foreign direct investment (FDI). Characterized by its fast-growing, dynamic bilateral trade and investment connection, the U.S.-U.A.E. relationship is a truly remarkable story.
We trust that you will find the information contained herein to be of tremendous value and that it will provide you with a greater understanding of both the business and legal aspects of operating in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and the Northern Emirates.
