Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) has previously been named as “The Most Attractive Place in the Middle East for Foreign Direct Investment” by the Financial Times and in recent years has become one of the fastest growing Emirates in the United Arab Emirates.  The RAK government has adopted an ambitious process of economic diversification that primarily focuses on industry, trade & commerce, tourism and real estate, with no single sector contributing more than 20% to the Emirates’ annual GDP.  RAK is home to a number of major companies well known throughout the Gulf region and beyond, including RAK Ceramics, Julphar Pharmaceuticals, The National Bank of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK Bank), RAK Properties, Gulf Cement Company PSC, Masafi, Stevin Rock and RAK Rock and it also has very successful free trade zones offering onshore and offshore company registrations, cement industry being part of the commercial business as well as an international airport and seaports.
