Sharjah: The Sharjah Publishing City (SPC) under the umbrella of the Sharjah Book Authority and the world’s first publishing free zone, have signed an agreement with the Sharjah Economic Development Department (SEDD) to launch a new dual trade licence system for businesses operating in the SPC.

The new dual licence is another investment advantage that the SPC provides.

The dual licence will grant companies two different approvals; the first is issued by the SPC administration, and the second by SEDD, which will allow companies to take advantage of investment opportunities within the free zone as well as the UAE’s mainland markets.

The launch of this new licencing service aligns with its dedication to boost incentives and advantages, which will foster the investment environment in Sharjah and attract more publishers, designers, authors, distributors and printing experts from around the world to set up their businesses there.
