Dubai South Free Zone, formerly known as Dubai World Central (DWC), is one of the most dynamic free zones in the city. Dubai South is a 145 square kilometre master-planned city designed to support a million inhabitants and sustain 500,000 jobs.
The proximity of the free zone to one of the largest airports and seaports in the region makes it a premier destination for businesses involved in trade and logistics.
In 2020, to encourage businesses to establish themselves within the free zone, Dubai South waived first-year license fees for new customers in the aviation, logistics and e-commerce sectors and its Business Park. The free zone authorities continue to review their policies to ensure they meet the demands and expectations of their clients.
