Ten new economic initiatives have been launched to improve the ease of doing business in Abu Dhabi and enhance the work experience for UAE nationals, residents and investors. The plan will comprise a set of initiatives, covering infrastructure and legislative projects, as well as SMEs, and industrial and social projects.
Reducing associated costs, and implementing the necessary procedures to facilitate commercial and investment activities in all fields are among the initiatives. This includes exempting all new licenses from the requirement of having an office or a workspace in the Emirate for two years, permitting permanent home licenses, and implementing instant licensing systems in most commercial license types and all services provided by the government.
Another initiative will look at the review of building regulations for the infrastructure, residential properties, commercial and industrial sectors, which would help reduce the costs for citizens, residents, and investors, and support the urban development of Abu Dhabi.
