His Highness's words about DIEZ

“The establishment of the Dubai Integrated Economic Zones Authority is a vital move to enhance Dubai’s global competitiveness and raise its investment attractiveness. The private sector is a major partner in our development journey over the next 50 years and the government continues to explore innovative initiatives to support their growth and success. Our objective is to make Dubai the destination of choice for global investors and a major focal point for global commerce.

The creation of the new Authority is one of our many strategic initiatives to raise the speed and efficiency of services for businesses and investors and enhance the ease of doing business. Our focus is on integrating government processes and facilitating greater access to global markets through an accelerated transition to a digital environment. We remain committed to strengthening our partnership with the private sector and making our business environment more attractive, both of which are key to sustained growth in our new phase of development.”
