The company, which is growing its operations in Dubai, is also adding a number of branches to serve a growing number of clienteles from across the world.
“As the UAE celebrates the 50th National Day, we also celebrate this happy occasion with our own set of milestones – having helped 5,000 businesses to establish in the UAE with a cumulative investment exceeding Dh500 million over the last five years since we started our journey in this beautiful country,” Jamad Usman, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, says.
“The overall economic impact by these businesses would have exceeded Dh5 billion – from office rents, décor, employee salary, expenditure by employees into the UAE economy. This, by no means, a small footprint and we are extremely proud of our achievement and our contribution to the UAE economy.
“On this occasion, I would like to salute the UAE’s visionary leadership and the people of the country, who helped us achieve such great milestone. We are fortunate to be part of the UAE’s success story.”
As part of the 50th UAE National Day celebration, Emirates First Group recently launched e-First Global, its premium business set-up and investment advisory services at the Opus within Business Bay – to serve its growing number of premium customers and large foreign investors in the UAE economy.
“As we move forward, we have taken a giant step to recently launch our premium lounge services for international investors who wants to avail premium and VIP services – end-to-end – so that they could proceed with business plan without any hassles,” Jamad Usman says.
The immigration and business reforms – namely allowing foreigners to own 100 percent stake in a mainland license without a local partner and the ten-year Golden Visa – in addition to the effective handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged a large number of wealthy people either to relocate to the UAE, relocate their business to the UAE or expand their businesses to the UAE.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the total number of active businesses in the UAE exceeded 650,000 last year, according to reports. The total number of business licences in the UAE reached 652,885 in June 2020, a rise of 4,201 compared to May 2020, according to the National Economic Registry of the UAE Ministry of Economy.
The statistics also show that the number of registered licences in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah reached 530,165, accounting for 81.2 percent of the total licences in the UAE.
