Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) is committed to fostering connections and driving growth in the emirate. The economic zone regularly organises networking events across industries, recognising the power of working together in today’s ever-changing business landscape.

These networking events serve as regular platforms for businesses to meet, exchange ideas, and unlock new possibilities. The economic zone hosts regular events to provide businesses in sectors such as building and construction, food and beverages, manufacturing, automobile, chemicals, cosmetics, and more with regular opportunities to collaborate, network, and thrive with potential partners, vendors, and distributors in cross sectors such as manufacturing, contracting, packaging, and trading. This allows the companies in the RAKEZ community to find business solutions under one roof.

Over the past few months, RAKEZ has brought together more than 1,300 startup and SME owners, industry leaders, and experts from public and private entities to share experiences and expertise. The networking events create an environment that encourages continuous growth and expansion, enabling clients to engage in meaningful discussions, learn from one another, and discover innovative solutions.

The monthly community events hosted by RAKEZ attract hundreds of UAE-based entrepreneurs and SMEs. These events cover a wide range of informative topics such as targeting and attracting customers, boosting their experience and retaining them; the ups and downs of new entrepreneurial journeys; the tips and tricks of using digital media for business; cultivating innovation, the importance of being agile in a competitive market; and, understanding UAE labour laws and the evolving corporate tax regulations. Attendees can stay up-to-date with the latest business trends, exchange experiences, and form potential partnerships.

“Networking events connect businesses, spark innovation, and drive our clients’ ongoing success,” said RAKEZ CEO, Ramy Jallad. “We are committed to providing a platform where industry leaders can come together, share their experiences, and shape the future of their sectors on a regular basis. Together, we create an unstoppable force that fuels ongoing economic growth in Ras Al Khaimah.”

Looking ahead, RAKEZ will continue to organise more networking events targeting different sectors. It will ensure an ongoing opportunity for businesses to connect and thrive, creating a supportive ecosystem that nurtures continuous growth and drives long-term success for businesses. By fostering collaboration and providing regular networking opportunities, RAKEZ supports its clients’ ongoing success and contributes to their ability to thrive in their respective industries.

Meanwhile Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) and the Indian Chamber of Food and Agriculture (ICFA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at fostering mutual growth and development within the food and agriculture sectors of the UAE and India.

The MoU was signed by Group CEO of RAKEZ Ramy Jallad and ICFA Chairman Dr MJ Khan, adding yet another area of strategic collaboration between the two countries. This alliance seeks to create opportunities for knowledge exchange, trade promotion, investment, and research and development collaboration.

Jallad said, “This MoU signifies our commitment to strengthening our relationships with key international organisations such as ICFA and recognises the role India plays as a strategic trade and investment partner for the UAE.

As one of the UAE’s largest trading partners, India brings a wealth of innovation and expertise in the food and agriculture sectors, particularly in sustainable farming and food processing technologies. We are excited about the potential knowledge exchange and capacity-building opportunities that this strategic collaboration brings. It will enable the tech and agricultural companies in our business community to enhance their methods and share innovative, sustainable farming techniques with major Indian companies.”
