RAS AL KHAIMAH: The Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) and RAK Department of Economic Development (RAK DED) have finally revealed the winners of the 2017 RAKEZ Business Excellence Awards during a glittering award ceremony held at Rixos Bab Al Bahr, Al Marjan Island, on Thursday.

Staying true to its commitment for the fourth year, the awards programme has yet again delivered an incredible night of celebration dedicated to the outstanding free zone and non-free zone businesses across Ras Al Khaimah. RAKEZ and RAK DED have brought levelled up prizes to the table, adding monetary rewards to the traditional stunning glass trophies.

“Leading a company to embody excellence is extremely difficult. This is why, I believe that RAKEZ Business Excellence Awards is among the most significant annual events in Ras Al Khaimah as it brings the most excellent businesses to the centre stage – the ones that demonstrated sheer hard work and helped ensure the emirate’s continued prosperity,” said Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Chairman of RAKEZ. “I’d like to personally congratulate the 2017 winners. We, at RAKEZ, are very proud of what you have achieved and are about to achieve as you go further in your business journey.”

Runner-ups were also recognised during the ceremony. The award winners and runners-up were selected through a systematic evaluation process by an independent judging committee from the International Performance Excellence (IPE).

“I am fascinated as to how the attention to the RAKEZ Business Excellence Awards has grown from day one. It’s not only the number of participation that’s rocketing year after year but also the quality of the applications. This goes to show that the awards programme is serving its purpose of inspiring excellence throughout the emirate’s business community,” commented Ramy Jallad, Group CEO of RAKEZ, RAK Free Trade Zone and RAK Investment Authority. “Seeing the brilliant teams come up on the stage tonight made us more eager to continue innovating our business solutions in order to effectively provide a nurturing business environment.”

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Kayed, Chairman of RAK DED said: “It has truly been an honour to showcase the passion and commitment of the businesses in Ras Al Khaimah. This is the first time for us to participate in the RAKEZ Business Excellence Awards and the experience has been very rewarding. We’ll be glad to team up with the RAKEZ again on the next edition of the awards programme.”

Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) is an authority established by the government of Ras Al Khaimah to oversee, regulate and consolidate the services, facilities and zones of Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) and Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA), and serves their respective clients.
