Expanding into new markets often requires setting up a new entity, a cumbersome and time-consuming process that can drain resources. However, with Meydan Free Zone, you can add new activities to your existing license, allowing you to tap into new markets and revenue streams without having to establish a new entity. In this regard, Meydan Free Zone is your ultimate partner in achieving your business objectives.
