DUBAI -- In the light of “exceptional circumstances” related to the coronavirus pandemic, Dubai on Saturday announced an economic incentive package for its free zones.

The measure consists of five parts, including postponing rent payments for six months and cancellation of some fines for companies and individuals, the state-run Emirates News Agency reported. The city is home to a number of free zones, including the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC).
