In addition, the RAK Exhibition Centre, a five star hotel and a shopping and entertainment complex are all within proximity.
The second section houses the Industrial Park, which was designed for heavy industrial production and warehousing of raw materials or finished products. Plot sizes are provided to suit individual client requirements and are fully serviced with water, electricity and telecommunications.
The third is a Technology Park located in a rapidly expanding area devoted to automated manufacturing and capital intensive quality lifestyle projects such as electronics and apparel. Moving forward, the Rak free zone is expected to see more and more companies joining in.
