Economic Zones World to build new integrated office building in Djibouti Free Zone

(HornTade) – Economic Zones World (“EZW”) today announced its plans to construct a high quality office building facility at the Djibouti Free Zone (“DFZ”) to cater for its customers’ growing business needs and provide them with a qualitative integrated service offering distinct from others in the country.

Managed by EZW the DFZ, with its investment friendly business environment and modern logistics infrastructure, has emerged as one of the most important strategic logistics platforms in East Africa.

The new two-storey multi-use building, with a total leasable area of 1,828 square metres, will provide office spaces in various sizes to accommodate the requirements of DFZ customers. Ground works for the building are expected to commence in September 2010.

The new facility, combined with 24 hour free zone access control, will provide DFZ customers with a greater range of amenities, thereby helping tomaximize their productivity. The facilities will include a restaurant, a Business Center, a convenience store, prayer rooms and an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) among other amenities.

Ali Dawood, Senior Vice President of EZW’s Emerging Business Units and Chief Planning Officer of the UAE Region, said: “The new office building is the latest multi-faceted development underway at DFZ. DFZ already hosts world-class facilities for offices, distribution, storage and light manufacturing. We aim to keep innovating to bring our customers the most sophisticated infrastructure and technology to support them as they look to maximize their operational efficiency and facilitate their businesses in the region and beyond.”

DFZ is currently home to over 100 leading regional and global companies including BMMI, SDV Bollore, and Seven Seas, among others. It has emerged as one of Africa’s leading trading and distribution hubs. The strategic location of the free zone allows companies located in DFZ to serve 380 million people in 19 countries in East and Central Africa.
