As per the director of healthcare industry dynamics of the team that worked on CountryFocus: Healthcare, Regulatory and Reimbursement Landscape - United Arab Emirates research report, UAE is benefiting from the establishment of health-related free zones, such as the Dubai Biotechnology and Research Park (DuBiotech), which have encouraged global pharmaceutical players to set up regional centers in the country. The director explains "The big draw for companies located in DuBiotech is that they receive a 100% exemption on corporate and personal tax, which is guaranteed for 50 years. Expenditure on pharmaceutical research and development in the UAE is very low compared to other countries, meaning that novel medicines must be imported at a high price, but projects such as DuBiotech may help to redress the balance."
