Emirates First Group, UAE-based leading business consultant, has launched e-First Global, its premium business set-up and investment advisory services to assist its expanding number of premium customers and large foreign investors in the country.

The launch of e-First Global, at Opus within Business Bay, comes at a time when business activities in the UAE resumed fully with investor confidence reaching new heights.

As per reports, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the total number of active businesses in the UAE exceeded 650,000 in 2020, which indicates the growing business confidence in the country.

The immigration and business reforms, namely allowing foreigners to own a 100 percent stake in a mainland license without a local partner and the ten-year Golden Visa, in addition to the effective handling of the COVID-19 pandemic have encouraged a large number of wealthy people to relocate to the UAE and move or expand their business to the country.
