 Dubai as an export hub


​​​In a short space of time, Dubai has transformed itself from a local trading community into one of the most inspirational, dynamic and successful commercial hub   in the world. 


With a diverse, multicultural population, Dubai offers all business​es a unique working environment.  As thousands of new businesses are discovering each year, Dubai is the perfect gateway between the East and West and the lynchpin for the region's imports and exports market – one of the most lucrative in the world.


As Dubai diversifies its economy and continues to invest heavily in its non-oil sectors, manufacturing has become one of the Emirate's most valuable assets. Low operational costs and thriving trading sector drive the industry's growth.


The vast range of manufacturing and production facilities in Dubai means that overseas manufacturers can take advantage of Dubai's low costs and location to either enter or expand into the wider region. The emirate's superb logistics infrastructure enables companies to import raw materials from any of their chosen suppliers and export their products to anywhere in the world with ease, efficiency and affordability.


Dubai is one of the largest re-export hub in the world and home to Jebel Ali port, one of the world's largest commercial ports and among the top ten busiest, and the adjoining free zone hosts more than 15,000  companies taking advantage of the free zone benefits.


The UAE's global free trade agreements ensure solid ties with many of the world's most established commercial nations as well as those which are rapidly developing and constantly seeking new resources to continue their growth.​​


For international businesses, both large and small, Dubai is the ideal platform for exporters to reach not just regional markets, but global economies.
