Dubai, March 2, 2010

Dubai Airport Freezone has agreed on a cooperation mechanism to exchange experiences in technical and IT services and commercial operations with Okinawa Free Trade Zone, Japan.

This agreement is part of DAFZ's efforts to make global strategic partnerships to attract more foreign investments.

“The visit of Okinawa Free Trade zone delegation is part of Freezone strategy to benchmark its processes, quality of services and facilities we offer to our clients,” said Nasser Al Madani, assistant director-general Dubai Airport Freezone.

“Our expertise and capabilities in Dubai will add a lot to them while cooperation with Okinawa Free Zone is an appropriate factor of attraction to Dubai Airport Freezone for Japanese investors.”

Al Madani said that out of 1,500 international companies many Japanese companies are now operating in the Freezone in various investment activities with an increase over 130 per cent during 2009 compared to the previous year which indicates a growing volume of economic exchanges between the two countries.

“Dubai Airport Freezone was established more than three years before us, as Okinawa free zone was established in 1999, making us more anxious to identify the achievements and challenges during this period, thereby benefiting from the results of this profound experience,” stated Katsunori Uehara, deputy director-general of the Tourism Department and Free Zones, the Okinawa Prefectural Government.

“With its two sections Okinawa free zone, that covers 122 hectares around the port and 26 hectares around Okinawa Airport, hopes for fruitful cooperation with the Dubai Airport Freezone in the fields of information technology services,” Uehara added.

“Through Dubai Airport Freezone we shall seek to create a strategic partnership between us and the UAE investors who want to invest in Japan.”-TradeArabia News Service
