UAE: Ras Al Khaimah Industry

Displaying 25 - 29 of 29
The limestone deposits of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), along with the emirate’s five ports, an airport and good road links to the rest of the UAE and GCC, have enabled the emirate to develop a substantial industrial sector, most notably in ceramics. Indeed, despite facing rising costs and uncertainty in overseas markets, RAK’s flagship industrial manufacturer recently reached a major milestone.
The industrial sector in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) has continued post significant growth in recent years, thanks to a favourable business environment and prudent regulation.
A major free trade zone (FTZ) in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) is looking to build on recent growth and expand its base to include new areas of business from an increasingly broad range of countries.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a growing role in RAK’s economy, enjoying government support and benefitting from continued upgrades to the local infrastructure.
From Saudi Arabia to Qatar, governments across the Gulf region are ramping up spending on building projects, with this likely to generate a host of opportunities for Ras Al Khaimah’s construction materials industry, a mainstay of the local economy.
