Take a look at a photograph of UAE from a couple of decades ago and the dusty, uninhabitable vastness overwhelms you. Cut forward to today. While the scraggly old buildings haven’t disappeared, you’ll find them hard to pick them from the blitz that blankets the region today. Yes. Balancing the charming old fishing towns with business towers that vie against each other to kiss the sky is UAE – the most economically viable places in the world to do business in (according to the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Report).
Every day, hundreds of gung-ho entrepreneurs and commercial houses land in the UAE to flex their business muscles. What exactly draws them here? Well, it’s hard to pick any one reason – because there are so many of them!
A strategic geographic location with fantastic connectivity. A ‘neighbourhood’ of emerging markets. Welcoming government policies. A conducive business climate (particularly delightful for foreign companies). A tolerant and permissive culture (especially encouraging to women entrepreneurs). No taxes or foreign exchange control. Competitive import duties. Reasonable real estate costs. Superb infrastructure. State of the art communication. Friendly banking regulations. World class living standards. Low crime rates. And, of course, stunning beaches.
No matter how you look at it, when it comes to setting up a business, the UAE is hard to beat. And if you’ve got the vision and the financial brawn, you are already half way there. We say half way, because the other half of this journey can be dicey.
