Sharjah Airport International Free Zone (SAIF Zone) recently organised road shows in Delhi, Faridabad, Jalandhar, Chandigarh and Gwalior cities in India to attract more enterpreneurs to the free zone.

Titled 'Business Opportunities in SAIF Zone,' the delegation highlighted business chances in the free zone for Indian businesses to further their growth.

"The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has been extending their support to us to organise road shows in India to project the facilities made available by us for setting up manufacturing, assembling, distribution, warehousing, and branch office activities in the UAE," said Saud Al Mazrouei, director of SAIF Zone and Hamriyah Free Zone.

"Indians have emerged as important investors within the UAE and India has become an important export destination for the UAE's manufactured goods.  India is UAE's third largest trading partner for the year 2014-15 after China and the US," Al Mazrouei added.

 "Equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, SAIF-Zone offers unbeatable trade incentives and benefits to its investors making it the free zone of choice. Tax exemptions and its world-class infrastructure make it the premiere destination for investment", said Raed Bukhatir, Deputy Commercial Director of SAIF Zone, while addressing seminars in different cities.

SAIF Zone facilities range from tax and duty exemptions to getting clearances within 24 hours, multiple license facilities, access to billions of consumers, to name a few.

"SAIF Zone is located centrally and well- connected with 3 major sea ports, adjacent to Sharjah's airport and 3 major highways connecting UAE & GCC countries", Bukhatir, further added.

In Gwalior, the event was chaired by Satyendra Kumar Jain, Director of Saffron Transformers Components Ltd. The event was attended by major industrialists and entrepreneurs who showed great interest in expanding their business to the UAE.
