A delegation from the prestigious Luxembourg School of Business was received by SPC Free Zone officials
A delegation from the Luxembourg Business School visited the Sharjah Publishing City Free Zone (SPCFZ) on Tuesday to explore the extensive range of business services and incentives investors and startups operating in different market sectors can capitalise on in SPCFZ’s free zone environment.
Salim Omar Salim, Director of SPCFZ, received the 20-member delegation and offered them a detailed overview of the region’s investment environment as well as the education sector-specific incentives SPCFZ has designed for businesses in the sector to thrive.
While touring around the free zone facilities that span a 100,000 sqm, the delegation took a closer look at the free zone’s infrastructure powered by advanced technologies and high-speed internet, and replete with meeting rooms, fully equipped office spaces, storage facilities, and more. The visitors were also briefed on the services SPCFZ provides including issuing permits, visas, business licenses, that were availed of by the local, regional and global companies that are based out of SPCFZ.
“This visit testifies to Sharjah’s global reputation and appeal in the academic sector, and the keenness of major global educational institutions to increase their knowledge about the investment opportunities as well as the operational infrastructure in the emirate geared towards helping global players in the sector establish themselves and achieve long-term success”, said Salim Omar Salim, adding, “the emirate is a leading gateway into the emerging markets of Middle East, Asia and Africa, which all have huge potential.”
“SPCFZ is keen on creating an ecosystem that meets the demands and fulfils every need of businesses and investors. We are attracting an increasing number of businesses, investors, and cultural and academic institutions to launch and expand their operations through our world-class free zone. There is no doubt that such visits play a key role in highlighting our key services, offerings and incentives to local and global entities”, he further added.
