The Umm Al Quwain Free Trade Zone is set to launch the second phase of expansion following the completion of infrastructure works.
The new phase of development at the free trade zone will house offices, labour accommodation, warehouses and residential complexes, according to a news report.
Johnson M George, General Manager of UAQ FTZ, said that once phase 2 comes to fruition, the free zone will function as an independent industrial city with amenities for its employees and residents such as a hospital, shopping centres, a school, a hotel and an exhibition and convention centre.
He said plans are also in place for a revamp of the free zone’s website to facilitate online submission of company formation documents and automated issuing of licences.
