We can provide this more easily by working closely with the Dubai Healthcare City Authority. Today’s agreement demonstrates how the DIFC is committed to providing a full range of world-class amenities, which will reinforce our position as one of the most prestigious business and lifestyle destinations in the region.”

DIFC will continue to issue trade licenses and other free zone business operating business requirements as for all other businesses.
