Foreword from Director General of Fujairah Freezone
Sharief Habib Al Awadhi
It is a privilege for me to pen the foreword of this book ‘Doing Business in Fujairah’.
The title Doing Business, the book, doing
business itself, or doing any type of act,
requires strategic planning, focused vision,
identifying the goals, the methods, and
the forecast results. It’s a two-way process;
therefore, the element of communication is
highly important and required.
For generations, UAE is known for its inherent
dynamisms and extensive trade links
throughout the region, on a global perspective.
It’s a known fact that UAE’s economy is not
just oil driven but a perfect business hub for
International trade with a unique synergy.
Under the leadership of our founding leaders
and visionaries it reinforces the fact that UAE
offers total economic freedom to the investors
making it an entrepreneurs’ haven. Fujairah
is always a stepping stone for bringing such
investments to this country.
The Free Zones also contributed heavily in
boosting the UAE economy along with factors
such as infrastructure, macroeconomic
stability, health and education, labour
market efficiency, technological readiness
and innovation. Being strategically located,
Fujairah has its significance as a centre of
marine navigation between the east and
the west. Under the wise leadership of H.H. Sheikh Hamad Bin Mohammed Al
Sharqi UAE Supreme Council Member and
Ruler of Fujairah, Fujairah is witnessing
a remarkable economic boom. Fujairah’s
abundant natural resources and investor
friendly economic policies make it a perfect
choice for investment.
