London Entrepreneurs Learn How To Trade With Middle East

By Editorial 16 September, 2013

London-based entrepreneurs with overseas ambitions met with senior representatives from the Ajman Free Zone Authority in the United Arab Emirates at the London Chamber of Commerce on September 09, to learn how to unlock business opportunities across the Middle East.

Nader Eldesouky, deputy general manager of the Ajman Free Zone Authority; Rishi Somaiya, director of sales and marketing; and Ali Fahmi, head of customer services, met with city professionals to discuss Free Zones and the advantages to working across Ajman and the UAE.

Nader Eldesouky said: "I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with London's businesses to discuss the lucrative investment opportunities in the UAE and how this can benefit companies across the Capital, promoting trade and industry between our two countries."

Rishi Somaiya, director of sales, added: "Ajman Free Zone Authority is the first to offer flexible payment facilities to its clients in up to twelve easy and convenient instalments. This payment facility will act as a springboard for entrepreneurs who find entry cost to business prohibitive."

Elaborating on the Emirate's many other attractions, Mr Somaiya explained that "inexpensive energy, an extremely economic wage structure, total exemption from all import and export duties and exceptionally low handling charges, gives AFZA a collective competitive edge."

Recently the Ajman Free Zone Authority also launched a new licence category for e-commerce enterprises, in addition to other existing licenses.
