Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) will be exhibiting at the 2013 Dubai Airshow, it announced.

The biannual event, which will be held for the first time at the new Dubai World Central location from 17-21 November 2013, is expected to attract its biggest audience to date.

RAK FTZ’s participation supports the free zone’s focus on attracting global aviation and aerospace companies to the emirate, as well as providing a unique opportunity to showcase the numerous business opportunities and advantages it offers to its growing portfolio of international clients, it said through a statement.

“We are delighted to make our Dubai Airshow debut and be part of this iconic event, which is now celebrating its 13th edition. The show provides the perfect platform for RAK FTZ to share its impressive roster of benefits and competitive advantage over other locations, as well as to invite global aviation entities to expand their operations to the UAE and capitalise on the favourable investment climate,” said Peter Fort, CEO, RAK FTZ.

“Ras Al Khaimah’s strategic location and its proximity to Dubai International Airport, one of the busiest air hubs in the world, is just one of the many advantages that we want to highlight to trade visitors next week.”

RAK FTZ currently has several aviation industry companies based across its various facilities and Mr Fort and his senior management team will communicate the free zone’s full spectrum of facilities, from offices and warehouses to serviced industrial land, to interested visitors and investors.

“Our reputation as a cost-effective location coupled with our focused business-friendly approach to new market entrants along with our portfolio of value-added services and easy access to the broader Middle East and other emerging markets are among the salient advantages that make RAK FTZ a standout option in the region,” added Fort.
