fDi On Location: Ras Al Khaimah
Whilst relatively new in the tourism map, Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), the northernmost emirate in the United Arab Emirates, established itself a long time ago as the UAE’s industrial heartland.

Leveraging its location in the heart of one of the world’s top growth regions – the emirate is within one hour’s drive from Dubai – RAK’s goal is to become a magnet for both businesses and holiday makers.
What’s the next stage of development for this sun-drenched industrial centre? fDi Magazine's editor-in-chief Courtney Fingar explores the business and leisure opportunities RAK has to offer.
