Modern Legal Framework and Security of Investment

The UAE is member of the World Trade Organisation and the Berne Convention on intellectual property rights protection, demonstrating the national commitment to the integrity of foreign investments.

The same respect that is embodied in the UAE's participation in these accords at the international level, is also translated down to the 'micro' level of each investment.

Through the Emiri Decree establishing the Hamriyah Free Zone, investors are guaranteed security of investment and full repatriation of profits and capital.
