Abu Dhabi Airports Free Zone (ADAFZ) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Registration Authority of Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM Registration Authority) to promote the position of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi as a financial centre.

The MoU seeks to establish joint initiatives in regards to providing warehouse commercial licensing, incentives and knowledge sharing. The agreement addresses several important areas of cooperation aimed at increasing benefits for customers where ADAFZ will be facilitating the provision of warehouse facilities for ADGM entities and both parties will promote legal structures available at each of their respective free zones to investors. The MoU also calls for the creation of a joint committee to oversee the collaboration between ADAFZ and the ADGM Registration Authority.

Bryan Thompson, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports commented: “The signing of this MoU is a milestone in the ongoing development of Abu Dhabi’s economic landscape, recognizing the shared objectives and mutual interests between both entities. By working together, we will focus on meeting our customers’ needs through an expanded product offering & simplified commercial processes including company licensing, registration and employee visa processing.”

Rowan Michael Kelly, senior vice president of ADAFZ, added: “Customers will be offered a variety of facility leasing options such as warehousing units, commercial offices and land plots, where facility management services are offered. Through this joint effort, we will support the growth of Abu Dhabi as a key economic hub and enhance the position of the UAE on a global scale.”

Dhaher Bin Dhaher Al Mheiri, CEO of ADGM Registration Authority remarked, “The MoU is a strategic collaboration between ADGM and ADAFZ that complements Abu Dhabi’s extensive and growing commercial facilities and services portfolio.  It will offer seamless and integrated solutions for investors with a focus on streamlining business setup.  The agreement intends to boost the UAE's vision to transform the country's economy, by diversifying the range and depth of economic activity, and driving in more growth from emerging sectors.”
