RAK FTZ opens Boulevard Business Centre in Downtown Dubai
As part of its ongoing efforts to provide the best services and facilities for clients to achieve their highest levels of success, Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) opened its new Boulevard Business Centre in Downtown Dubai on 21 June.
Conveniently located alongside the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, the new offices serve as a “one-stop-shop” for both existing and prospective clients. They provide a larger business centre than RAK FTZ’s previous Dubai offices, with a wider range of services, including new sales, registration, licensing and leasing, company support and government services. Clients can gain access to all of their business needs in one location. This saves clients the time and effort of running to multiple locations in order to meet their bureaucratic requirements.
The previous promotion and business offices in the Fairmont Dubai Hotel and Dubai Festival City closed on 18 June 2015.
“Our move to more spacious offices, conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Dubai, highlights our ongoing commitment to provide services and facilities to our clients that are not only of the highest quality but are also easy to reach,” said Ramy Jallad, Acting CEO, RAK FTZ. “We have gathered all of the services that are currently available in our Ras Al Khaimah Business Centre headquarters, and have placed them under one roof at a prime location in Dubai. This ‘business-in-a-box’ facility allows for the smooth setup and expansion of profitable companies, in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic commercial centres.”
RAK FTZ proudly offers a multitude of value-added services to support investors in their new ventures. Clients may approach the professional team in the Boulevard Business Centre for licensing and facility services. These include trade licence renewal, licence and share amendments, facility expansion, and letter and certificate requests. Government-related services are also available, including investor and worker visa applications, Emirates ID applications, and medical check applications. Additionally, the Mazeed Services Desk has a presence at the new facility to offer business support services including document translation, notarisation and attestation, employee recruitment and training, logistics, procurement, as well as creative and printing services for promotional materials, among other services.
Located on the 22nd floor of Boulevard Plaza Tower 2 in Emaar Boulevard, the RAK FTZ Boulevard Business Centre features a classical and modern Arabian design, projecting the free zone’s new image. The interior exudes elegance with subtle tones, dark woods and granites. It conveys a warm yet luxurious atmosphere with clear views of the Burj Khalifa and the entire Downtown Dubai area. Additionally, the interior design and layout was deliberately designed to maximise the use of solar lighting in most areas of the office.
Further, the new Boulevard Business Centre houses some of RAK FTZ’s strategic partners. These include Noor Bank, an Islamic bank that offers a wide range of financial services and products; VFS Global, a company that provides visa, consular and identity management solutions; RAK Insurance, an organisation that offers personal and corporate insurance; Ras Al Khaimah International Corporate Centre (RAK ICC), which facilitates foreign investors in establishing international business companies domiciled in RAK; and Cozmo Travel, an agency that provides customised travel solutions for both independent and corporate travellers.
Having some of its strategic partners on board at the new Boulevard office is part of RAK FTZ’s customer-centric business model. The free zone recognises that clients are major stakeholders, and is constantly looking for ways to furnish them with better business solutions, infrastructure support, technological innovation and general assistance. The new Boulevard Business Centre enhances the accessibility of the free zone’s services and helps RAK FTZ deliver the best and most consistent client experience.
“Our new Boulevard Business Centre is yet another way in which RAK FTZ gives business owners the ease of mind to focus less on their office needs and bureaucratic requirements, and more on making their companies succeed,” Mr Jallad said.
