UAE Company Incorporations on the Way Up with Application for Membership in IMO’s Executive Council

UAE Company Incorporations on the Way Up with Application for Membership in International Maritime Organization Executive Council

July, 2017

The UAE has applied to be nominated for membership of the Executive Council of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

As reported by Hellenic Shipping News, the United Arab Emirates is preparing for second category membership (category B) together with 11 countries that are leaders in international sea trade.

The UAE already holds a top ranking for ports management and is ranked in the top three countries for the quality of its ports and sixth in port infrastructure.  If the UAE succeeds with membership of the IMO’s Executive Council, it will strongly enhance the UAE’s position in the global maritime sector.

This will lead to a boost of interest in UAE company incorporations from leading maritime companies and investors in the maritime community as well as marine-related businesses such as importers, exporters, ship repairing and ship refueling.

UAE company incorporations will increase, especially in free zones like Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), Dubai Maritime City (DMC) and Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) that focus on the maritime sector and offer the well-known free zone benefits.

  • 0% import and export custom duties
  • 100% repatriation of capital and profits from the business with no restrictions

  • Access to huge markets of MENA and Asia regions
  • Many UAE free zones are sector specific so investors have easy access to the sector’s services and expertise
  • Simple and swift company incorporation and licensing within the UAE free zones with one-stop-shops for administrative and government related services
  • Low business start-up and operational costs
  • Solid and simple laws and regulations
  • Easy recruitment procedures with access to low cost workforce
  • Long term leases for a wide range of world-class facilities
