The Canadian Business Council Abu Dhabi is organizing an informative session with the Abu Dhabi Airports Free Zone (ADAFZ)In this webinar, you will learn more about the business opportunities with ADAFZ and why ADAFZ should be your next investment destination.

ADAFZ is a 100% foreign ownership, tax-free business environment with a 0% import/re-export tax duty haven. The zone was established in 2012 as part of the emirate’s economic diversification strategy and is home to businesses from a wide range of sectors like aviation, logistics, e-commerce and ICT with many new sectors coming online. ADAFZ, unlike any other free zone in the emirate, lists its proximity to international airports as one of the major advantages afforded to its clients, serving as a strategic hub and gateway to the Middle East.

Operating at 3 different districts located in Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Ain International Airport and Al Bateen Executive Airport, ADAFZ manages a property portfolio of over 88 km2 and acts as a One-Stop-Shop providing a variety of world-class products and facilities, including fully serviced business centres, plots of land for development, aircraft hangers and more, all of which offer an outstanding return on investment to our tenants.
