Dubai Airport Freezone named top in Mena

The Dubai Airport Freezone has been named as the first overall free zone in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.This is according to the Middle East Free Zone Rankings by Foreign Direct Investment Magazine, which recognised the site's efforts to provide quality services, attract foreign investment and strengthen its position as a vital business hub in the Middle East.It is at the advantage of attracting foreign investment in particular because of the free zone's close proximity to Dubai Airport, which is continually expanding and welcoming more business travellers from a variety of routes across the globe.Indeed, the Dubai Airport Freezone was also ranked in top position by the magazine in the best transportation links category, Emirates 24/7 reported.It comes after the business hub was ranked second in the world in a study conducted last year, as well as winning other awards including the Dubai Human Development Award.
