Ajman Media City Free Zone (AMCFZ)

About Ajman Media City Free Zone

Ajman Media City Free Zone (AMCFZ), created in 2018, to make the emirate of Ajman an international business hub in line with the ‘Ajman 2021’ plan. The plan includes 21 indices and strategic objectives divided into three key pillars – a better place to live, excellent government and green economy.

The core focus of the free zone, as its name indicates, is the creative sector. Thanks to the success of Dubai Media City and other media-specific zones across the UAE, the government of Ajman aspires to attract established and new age media firms from across the region and beyond. Early on, it has signed on agreements with regional powerhouses in India as well as the Greater Middle East.
