Ensuring the smooth operation of the UAE’s industrial, manufacturing and transportation industry.
The UAE’s industrial, manufacturing & transportation sectors play a crucial role in its ongoing efforts to diversify its economy. 2021 served as a bellwether year for manufacturing. The country opened 220 new factories and launched an initiative to increase manufacturing’s contribution to the GDP from $33 billion to $81 billion within a decade. The country also saw its ranking in the United Nation’s Competitive Industrial Performance Index jump five spots globally, from 35th in 2020 to 30th in 2021. Meanwhile, the country’s transportation sector is already internationally renowned, having the world’s busiest airport, ninth-largest port, state-of-the-art public transport, and the region’s most advanced transport and infrastructure facilities.
Regulatory oversight of the industrial, manufacturing, and transportation sectors is multi-jurisdictional, complex, and constantly evolving. Habib Al Mulla & Partners provides clients conducting business in these fields with comprehensive counsel and representation designed to overcome potential impediments and facilitate smooth operations. We provide services covering all elements of the law that might intersect a company’s operations and take a proactive approach designed to facilitate its strategic goals.
