Jafza participates in ADIPEC to attract more oil and gas companies

DUBAI, — Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), with its strong base of over 850 oil and gas powerhouses from 77 countries, is participating at the 19th edition of Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC), in a bid to attract more oil and gas companies.

The event, which begins tomorrow at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, is being held under the patronage of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and is organised by the Global Energy division of dmg events.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DP World and Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, commented about the participation at the exhibition, noting, “ADIPEC is one of the most important events on our calendar. We have witnessed the exhibition grow over the years, attracting the biggest and the best players from the energy industry. For Jafza, it is an opportunity to meet new investors, along with our current clients, and explore new business avenues for the companies.”

The free zone’s strategic proximity to the world’s largest service providers, the Jebel Ali Port and Al Maktoum International Airport, underlines Jafza’s most efficient multi-modal connectivity.

Mr. Sulayem added, “Jafza, over the past 3 decades, has established itself as the region’s energy hub and continues to work towards the vision of Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to establish the Emirate as the global centre for innovative business and investment destination. The seamless operations, coupled with superior infrastructure and on-the-go services, augments our position among the free zones.

“With oil prices stabilising in the last few months, the industry is set for a positive 2017. We expect companies to expand their businesses to newer markets in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, and Jafza offers the ideal gateway to the companies.”

Mr. Sulayem added, “Our smart and innovative services reflect the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed of transforming Dubai into an international trade hub that offers value to its investors through effortless thoroughfare of their goods in the region and accelerates their business growth.”
