United Arab Emirates 

BUSINESS SETUP 

The UAE, particularly Dubai and Abu Dhabi, is a rapidly growing market. In recent years, the government has increasingly passed business-friendly laws that make it easier for foreign investors to settle here. Due to current world events, company formations in Dubai and the remaining Emirates continue to proliferate. The country is also positively establishing itself due to its ideal location between Asia, Africa, and Europe. Dubai is home to the 9th largest trade port in the world as well as the world's largest airport, which is why it is also referred to as the gateway to the world.
