The Economic Shift in the UAE

The UAE is investing heavily in sectors outside of oil and natural gas as its reserves are slowly but surely dwindling. In addition to tourism, which has made Dubai and Abu Dhabi world-famous, investments in technology, healthcare, logistics, entertainment and other sectors will lessen the shock of losses in oil and gas revenue.

In order to encourage the brightest entrepreneurs and innovative organizations, the UAE has simplified the process of establishing a business. According to the World Bank, the UAE has been improving at impressive rates over the past decades in its ease-of-use of doing business. In the past year alone it has improved 12 places.

This increase is based on the adoption of many policies designed to introduce new levels of efficiency as more people come into the UAE to open a company. For example reserving a company name, notarizing memorandum of agreement and applying for registration at the Department of Economic Development (DED) only takes one day. Similarly, filing company documents with the DED and getting a trade license, as well as registering for membership at the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) takes only three days. By getting UAE virtual phone numbers, you will be able to receive incoming calls from people in the UAE and get your business up and running.
