According to Wafa Balaswad, "Turkey Build served as a fitting platform to leverage business opportunities and showcase SAIF ZONE's credentials as a facilitator of foreign direct investment into the UAE. With high-profile personalities, decision makers, trade missions and key government officials attending the event, it provided positive exposure to the Free Zone that supports its long-term business development objectives."
