No

Idea

This can be a multi-million AED business in UAE and GCC, since most schools, colleges, universities, libraries, purchase books, magazines, educational material in bulk and there are not many players with valid NMC and UAE DED registrations.

Current Status

Clean business, no financial liability, no overheads, clear files with immigration and labor department, low sponsor fees, scope for business turnover is very big.

Organizational form

Limited Liability company incorporated in Dubai

Problem or Opportunity

Problem: Sourcing of books has to be done through only registered NMC licensed companies. KPPT has that license.
Publishing is done only by licensed companies. KPPT has the license.
