Ras Al Khaimah Media Free Zone and Film City was launched 3 January 2006, by the Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAKFTZ) authority competing directly with Dubai Media City.
Ras Al Khaimah has earned its reputation as a pre-eminent commercial centre with an innovative, dynamic and entrepreneurial business culture. Strategically located at the crossroads of trade and commerce between East and West, it is ideally positioned to service and access markets that span the Middle East, Africa, the Indian Subcontinent and the CIS countries. Ras Al Khaimah is the location of choice for the modern professional and an ideal location for multinationals to establish a regional presence.
RAKFTZ is being developed because of the increasing cost of living in Dubai, which makes Ras Al Khaimah an alternative place to go. RAK Free Trade Zone authority has licensed Mirage Holdings Free zone Company, LLC, Ras Al Khaimah, to operate the RAK media city.
