DAFZA Showcases Cutting-edge Technology at GITEX
Dubai Airport Freezone Authority (DAFZA) showcased the development of the new investments and initiatives that have been delivered at GITEX Technology Week, being hosted at the Dubai World Trade Center.
The free zone showcased the advantages of the new services and the investment benefits it offers to regional and international companies.
During the event, DAFZA hosted an official delegation from several Indian companies specializing in Internet of things (IoT), blockchain and digital solutions.
The aim of this visit was to plan investments of Indian businesses to the free zone.
DAFZA also announced the success of its new strategy for business set up at GITEX.
The free zone has completed more than 60,000 customer transactions for business set up through cloud technology and automation.
Buthaina Bin Fahad, Senior Director of Information and Communication Technology, DAFZA said: "DAFZA has a strategic role to play in attracting foreign direct investment to Dubai. Our aim is to enable businesses to set up quickly and efficiently and through technology we are achieving this goal.
“Enabling businesses to set up through the cloud has led to increased operational efficiency and acceleration of all technical services. Cloud technology has also led to greater customer service and high performance storage technology, plus disaster recovery."
Buthaina Bin Fahad commented: "We have made great progress over the past few months on Dubai Blink which will completely transform how companies trade and do business around the world.
“We are working with Dubai Free Zone Council on this ambitious initiative under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, and we have also begun discussions with the World Free Zone Organization to include global free zones in the project."
In partnership with Bright Ideas, DAFZA has also created LaunchPad: an innovation process where employees can transform their ideas into full-fledged projects.
This is being done through design thinking workshops that form teams with other employees across various departments to execute them.
DAFZA intends to roll this out to involve clients within the coming period so that the entire DAFZA community can take part in the innovation process.
