SAIF Zone was established in 1995 by Emiri Decree No.2. It was built to promote and enhance business in an atmosphere free of regulations and red tape. Perfectly positioned, accessible to both the Arabian Gulf and the Indian Ocean and the unbeatable logistical advantage of the ‘Sharjah Link’ (3 sea ports and Sharjah International airport) make the SAIF-Zone the ideal business hub.
The inception of Sharjah Airport International Free Zone (SAIF-Zone) more than a decade ago triggered Sharjah’s evolution into the epicenter of economic activity that it is today. With an hundred fold increase in member companies since its initiation, the SAIF-Zone has completed thirteen successful years and has surpassed several milestones of growth and expansion.
Speed, reliability and cost-effectiveness have been the cornerstone of Sharjah’s industrial policy. A stable government, proactive policies, solid industrial base and an attractive incentives package have drawn a very high proportion of foreign investments into Sharjah in recent years.
