“Dubai South free zone”
The Land of Expo 2020

Dubai World Central Name changed to the Dubai South Free Zone is the development currently under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It will be an economic zone to support a number of activities including logistics, aviation, commercial, exhibition, humanitarian, residential and other related businesses around Al Maktoum International Airport with the planned annual capacity of 12 million tonnes of cargo and 160 million passengers. The construction area is 140 square kilometres, almost two times the size of Hong Kong Island.

While all free zones may offer certain advantages to entrepreneurs, such as zero taxes on individuals and corporates, 100% company ownership, no currency restrictions and many other features, it is not true to say that all are the same as each also offers up its own range of benefits that differ slightly from others in the region.
