DWC Free Trade Zone

Initiated by the Dubai government, Dubai World Central (DWC) is the world’s first aerotropolis. Strategically located between the East and West and within close proximity to Jebel Ali Sea Port, DWC is a strategic initiative that confirms the emirate as a world renowned international trade centre. DWC has been created because of the world’s thriving aviation industry, though it should be noted that like most Free Trade Zones in the UAE, it is possible to establish companies with varying trading activities, including consultancy and trading activities.

DWC is structured around the Al Maktoum International Airport (AMIA), but is also comprised of several other key components including the Aviation District, the Logistics District, the Golf District, the Commercial District, the Residential District, the Business Park, the Exhibition District and the Humanitarian District.

Setting up a business in DWC comes with amenities that other jurisdictions do not possess. The business park is the perfect location to establish your business to the international community and has an innovative, modern architectural design.

Of course, there are many financial incentives to establishing your business in DWC. With its location within close proximity to Jebel Ali Airport and JAFZA, DWC is an independent free zone. Companies can benefit from advantages that come with a free trade zone including 100% tax free operation, no corporation tax, competitive rates and more.
