The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of Germany’s major trade partners in the region. The bilateral volume of trade in 2020 was 7.51 billion euro and the outlook for 2021 is even higher. More and more German companies are deciding to set up in the UAE and profit from ease of access to new markets.
As the Middle East’s largest, and Abu Dhabi’s premier integrated industrial ecosystem, KIZAD provides unmatched competitive advantages to German companies looking to establish a base of operations in the Middle East. Besides location, these benefits include state-of-the-art infrastructure with multi-modal connectivity by road, ports, and rail and air networks, connecting businesses with 4.5 billion consumers.
KIZAD’s proximity to the UAE’s two major seaports, four international airports within a two-hour driving distance, and uncongested multi-lane highways make it highly efficient for businesses looking to serve global markets.
The webinar will highlight the key benefits to German companies looking to leverage KIZAD’s low setup and operational costs, world-class connectivity, unmatched ability to scale operations, and a unique cluster-based approach that puts businesses next to their supplies and customers with access to shared facilities and social amenities.
