RAK Economic Zone


Hello, everyone!

Welcome to Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone’s (RAKEZ) website! I am pleased to have you here. We carefully designed this interactive medium to provide a user-friendly platform where you can connect with us and learn more about our products.

RAKEZ is a world-class Authority established to consolidate Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) and Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA) under one umbrella along with their over 13,000 clients, making it one of the largest economic zones in the region.
For the past years, RAK FTZ and RAKIA have been joining forces to contribute effectively to the economic development of the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. And in 2017, the two have taken their collaboration to the next level through the establishment of RAKEZ.

Now with combined overall functions, we provide investors with broader advantages by bringing them a more cost-effective investment environment; simpler and faster processes; and a wider range of facilities and services across five specialised zones.

We take care of our clients and potential investors by always putting them at the top of our priorities. Client centricity is one of our main pillars, hence, we always find ways to boost the level of ‘ease of doing business’ at RAKEZ. One of the many ways we do this is by implementing corporate governance according to global standards, allowing us to let our stakeholders experience increased transparency and reduced bureaucracy.

RAKEZ is another exciting chapter in the story that was started by RAK FTZ in 2000 and RAKIA in 2005. We will continue to stay true to our promise of stimulating sustainable growth to Ras Al Khaimah and its global family of entrepreneurs.

I invite you to be part of our journey and discover why multinational investors, from startups and SMEs to large enterprises, choose RAKEZ as their launch pad to success.
