Jafza participation in Rebuild Iraq 2005
Jafza (Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority) has announced their successful participation in Rebuild Iraq 2005, the Second International Trade Exhibition for Rebuilding of Iraq, which was held recently in Amman, Jordan. The Jafza stand at the exhibition generated a lot of interest among participants that included buyers, manufacturers, suppliers, contractors, government bodies and a variety of decision-makers involved in the economic rebirth of Iraq.
Rebuild Iraq is a highly specialised show that focuses on the rebuilding of Iraq’s critical infrastructure in electricity, water, oil, health, transportation, agriculture, and telecommunications sectors.
Commenting on the success of their participation, Ahmed Al Falasi, Regional Manager, Middle East, Jafza said; “We are extremely satisfied with the response we received from participants at the event. We were overwhelmed by enquiries from businessmen and investors from Iraq and surrounding areas who were keen on knowing details about setting up operations at Jafza. Iraq at present offers numerous business development opportunities for a wide range of sectors, owing to the need for rebuilding in most areas and Jafza is committed to offering its total support in the entire process of rebuilding of Iraq.”
The Jafza pavilion at Rebuild Iraq 2005 was inaugurated by the UAE Ambassador to Jordan along with the Jordanian Minister of Trade and Economy. The event was attended by major U.S., British and other international contractors and regional subcontractors, who are the leading buyers in Middle East markets. The show also gave a chance for exhibitors to meet and appoint Iraqi, Jordanian and other Middle East agents and distributors.
“Rebuild Iraq 2005 facilitated Jafza to have direct access to international companies and decision-makers. This was a good platform for us to target potential clients by projecting the various strategic advantages of investing in Jafza and we were able to achieve our key business goals by participating in the exhibition. We are in a position to offer world-class services to companies and organisations that are taking a lead role in the socio-economic revival of Iraq,” added Al Falasi.
Jafza offers a range of benefits to companies who plan to set up operations in the zone, like simple administrative procedures, zero duties on all import and export goods and machineries within the free zone, modern communication facilities and excellent support services.
More than 1000 exhibitors in building and construction; oil and gas; municipal services and security; hospital and health; IT and communications; education, industry, agriculture, food technologies and products from over 40 countries from Europe, America, South Asia, Middle East and the Far East participated in the exhibition.
