Now the government of UAE relieves limits on foreign ownership to attract investors. The United Arab Emirates has comfortable and assassinated a series of restrictions on overseas ownership of companies. The country’s latest bid to enhance its global status and attract overseas investors.

The presidential proclamation changing the corporate law assist the United Arab Emirates (UAE) extend its leading position regionally and globally as an attractive destination for projects and company. The changes permit overseas traders and entrepreneurs to set up their own business or companies without involving local shareholders.
