Webinar on the UAE’s Special Economic Zones Coming Up!


We're excited to announce our next webinar and first in a series of events dedicated to Special Economic Zones (SEZs) throughout the globe.

This one, which will take place on Thursday, October 10th at 12:00 pm London BST, will focus exclusively on the UAE's SEZs.

With their own business and trade laws, Special Economic Zones (SEZs) within jurisdictions offer plenty of financial advantages to companies that decide to set up there.

This webinar will take a look at how SEZs in the UAE operate, their main advantages and disadvantages when attracting FDI, and other issues related to their management.
