Dubai South Free Zone

Dubai South (known also as Dubai World Central or DWC) is a strategic initiative of the Government of Dubai that is set to be largest and a leading global trade, business and aviation hub. Dubai South is a continuation of Dubai’s legacy as a connection point between the East and the West. It is recognised as one of the most aspiring and unique projects of its kind in the world and it covers the 140-square kilometre area next to Jebel Ali Sea Port.

The free zone also includes Al Maktum International Airport, which once completed will have the capacity to handle 12 million tonnes of annual cargo capacity and 160 million passengers. This makes Dubai South an exceptional multimodal project that supports a number of activities in logistics, aviation, commercial, exhibition, humanitarian, residential and leisure-related businesses.

Moreover, Dubai will host the World Expo 2020. Under the theme of “connecting minds, creating the future,” Dubai is the first city in the MENASA region to host such a highly notable global exhibition. The venue of the exhibition will be the exhibition district of Dubai South.
