Hamriyah Free Zone

The Hamriyah Fee Zone Sharjah, was established by an Emiri Decree issued on November 12, 1995. Since the decree was issued no effort has been spared in fast-tracking the development of the Free Zone to serve as a cornerstone in Sharjah and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) industrial development strategy.
