AstraGene Testimonial

"MoIAT helped us in a big way at the beginning stages of our company. They introduced us to Emirates Development Bank and helped us secure an infrastructure loan as well as working capital which helped us to enhance our production. We were supported by DHA and exhibited at their stand as part of the “Made in Dubai” initiative. ‘Make it in the Emirates’ is an admirable program from the UAE Government. Entrepreneurs in the UAE have a number of unique advantages. The UAE is a stable, peaceful, tolerant, and multiracial country. It is well connected by air and sea (for export and import). There is a great transparency of governance with easy access to government officials. We have an excellent infrastructure and a number of government programs to enhance investment. The most important is the great vision of the country’s leaders with supportive government leaders and officials wanting UAE to be the best country to live in the world".
