Dubai Gold and Diamond Park

Dubai Gold and Diamond Park is an extension of the Jebel Ali Free Zone and is administered by the Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (JAFZA). Since 2011 Dubai Gold and Diamond Park (DGDP) has been the largest free zone devoted to gold and diamond businesses and is considered a major hub for jewelry buyers and investors. The leading attraction in the free zone is a Visitors Retail Center (mall) specializing in gold and diamond jewelry. With almost a hundred retail businesses, over one hundred manufacturing units and space for over three hundred commercial offices the jewelry industry is well represented. A person looking for a unique example of the jeweler’s art is sure to find the right item here. There are many small and medium shops where custom pieces are designed and created.

The visual aspect of the park and surroundings make it a popular attraction for tourists. No visit to Dubai is complete without a day spent shopping the retail mall and enjoying a break in the outdoor courtyard or a meal in one of the wide selection of cafes and restaurants. All visitors receive the finest service from knowledgeable and helpful staff. The quality and selection of gold and diamond products is unmatched and there are several talented designers and craftsmen close at hand for unique custom pieces.

Benefits of doing business in Dubai Gold and Diamond Park

In the thriving gold and diamond market within the free zone investment opportunities abound. The benefits of establishing a business in a Dubai free zone are further enhanced by the common interests of businesses in Dubai Gold and Diamond Park. The opportunities for networking, cooperation and collaboration among jewelry professionals are multiplied by the proximity of similar interests. All the workshop areas are built to meet the specific requirements of jewelry manufacturing. Each workshop is provided with an independent Acid Room and washroom. Each unit also has air conditioning, gas supply, water supply, and electricity. Facilities are protected by a modern security system and fire protection. There is a ground floor prayer room and a break room in the building.

Dubai Gold and Diamond Park offers all the benefits of doing business in a UAE Free Zone combined with the fact that the park is dedicated to a relatively narrow field of business focus. With a large number of jewelry-based businesses in close proximity, the opportunities for networking, cooperation and collaboration are magnified. The business activities allowed in DGDP are: gold and diamond jewelry specialty shops; health and fitness providers; educational organizations; entertainment establishments; banking and financial services; and supermarkets. Some of the businesses will be providing services for the retail establishments and having service providers close to service consumers makes customer support more efficient and responsive.
