New Book Launched: ‘Doing Business in Fujairah’

The new book, ‘Doing Business in Fujairah’ was launched at the recent Fujairah International Business Forum.


The 33 page book was compiled and designed by Morison Menon Corporate Services after undertaking an analysis of the business landscape of Fujairah and talking with government officials in order to ensure accuracy of information and gain the verification of the legal consultants for Fujairah.


According to the Foreword written by Director General of the Fujairah Free Zone, Sharief Al Awadhi, ‘Doing Business in Fujairah’ was written for these purposes:

“[It] shall guide entrepreneurs and be a ready reckoner in understanding the business characteristics of Fujairah. It represents the recommended communication medium between the investor and the licensing authorities.”

The book is the first edition and it appears to be a manuscript that will be updated as information changes and new thoughts arise.
