HRTV: An Interview with Taner Topcu, Director of Academic Zone at RAKEZ

Taner Topcu, Director of Academic Zone at RAKEZ (the leading government authority operating in Ras Al Khaimah) explains the quality assurance decision making for a world-class investment destination.

RAKEZ is a world-class Authority established to consolidate Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) and Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA) under one umbrella along with their over 13,000 clients, making it one of the largest economic zones in the region.
For the past years, RAK FTZ and RAKIA have been joining forces to contribute effectively to the economic development of the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. And in 2017, the two have taken their collaboration to the next level through the establishment of RAKEZ.

Now with combined overall functions, RAKEZ provide investors with broader advantages by bringing them a more cost-effective investment environment; simpler and faster processes; and a wider range of facilities and services across five specialised zones.

RAKEZ take care of the clients and potential investors by always putting them at the top of their priorities. Client centricity is one of the main pillars, hence, RAKEZ always find ways to boost the level of ‘ease of doing business’. One of the many ways RAKEZX does this is by implementing corporate governance according to global standards, allowing them to let their stakeholders experience increased transparency and reduced bureaucracy.
