HIS HIGHNESS SHEIKH MAKTOUM BIN MOHAMMED BIN RASHID AL MAKTOUM

CHAIRMAN

In little more than a decade, the DIFC has established itself as the premier financial free zone in a region that offers infinite possibilities for future opportunities and growth. By offering outstanding advantages such as security of contracts, independent courts, 100 percent ownership and other free zone benefits, the Centre has established a reputation as a world-class environment for businesses and investors. The next decade will see the implementation of an ambitious strategy to consolidate the DIFC’s and Dubai’s position as a pivotal hub in the global financial network.
