Over 800 Indian firms operate in Jebel Ali Free Zone


Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), the flagship free zone entity of Dubai, has registered an additional 60 Indian companies in 2015 from key sectors, including electronics, steel, construction and building materials, chemicals and petroleum products and FMCG, a report said.

With over 800 Indian companies from various sectors based in Jafza, the free zone recorded a growth of 10 per cent last year in the number of companies registered. This is due to the strong bilateral ties between India and the UAE and the reputation that Jafza has built among India’s business community, added the WAM report.

Jafza has been organising regular roadshows in India and the latest in the series was a three-city tour held recently in major Indian business centres Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and New Delhi. Over 300 senior investors and Indian businessmen from various sectors attended business seminars to learn about the attractive investment environment in Dubai and Jafza, it said.

The business seminar in New Delhi was attended by Ahmad bin Harib Al Falahi, UAE commercial and trade attache to India, at the UAE Embassy in India.

Opportunities for healthcare companies was Jafza’s focus in Hyderabad, one of the leading destinations for medical tourism in India. Adil Al Zarooni, senior vice president-sales, presented an outline of the pharmaceutical industry in Jafza and highlighted efforts by the government to promote Dubai as a regional destination for medical tourism.
