AJMAN: Ajman Free Zone (AFZ) and Emirates Post Group (EPG), the leading postal and express delivery service provider in the UAE, have reached a joint cooperation agreement to develop their strategic partnership and align efforts and activities across areas of common interest.

The agreement seeks to ensure the best utilisation of capabilities available in areas of human resources and exchange knowledge and expertise to provide AFZ investors with best-in-class services.

The agreement was signed in the presence of an AFZ delegation headed by Fatima Mohammed Salem, Acting Director-General of Ajman Free Zone, and EPG representatives led by Acting Chief Commercial Officer of EPG, Obaid Mohammed Al Qatami.

The agreement addresses ways of cementing mutual understanding and cooperation through an effective regulatory framework conducive to developing ties and enabling the free zone customers to benefit from EPG services.

It envisages improvement of services, including the possibility of enabling the Emirates Post Group to transfer its existing branch to Ajman Free Zone, in a way that enhances its services to the free zone operators in particular and the local community in Ajman in general. This is besides exploring the possibility of providing postal services through the allocation of a PO Box for each licensed facility operating in the free zone.

Fatima Mohammed Salem, Acting Director-General of Ajman Free Zone, underlined the importance of the agreement in bolstering the partnership with EPG and enhancing knowledge transfer and exchange of expertise, including accelerating training and qualification of human cadres.

The agreement reflects AFZ’s keenness to provide all tools and services conducive to boosting investor confidence, she noted.
