The Dubai Government strongly endorses technology enterprise providing a favourable business climate supported by a superior infrastructure, zero tax, business friendly laws and regulations, and access to a region of 1.8 billion people. This is reflected in the fact that the region’s technology sector is growing rapidly with IT spending in the Gulf expected to hit 180 billion in just 3 years.
When it comes to research & development, Dubai offers strong protection of intellectual property. In 1992, the UAE introduced three federal laws (numbers 37, 40 and 44) for the protection of industrial and intellectual property which provide protection against commercial piracy and fraud. These are currently regarded as some of strongest IP laws in the world and are comparable with US law in their ability to protect intellectual property development.
