It has an area of a mere 260 square kilometres (100 sq mi), which makes it the smallest of the emirates in terms of area. It is named after the city of Ajman, which is its seat of government, it is bordered on the north, east, and south by the Emirate of Sharjah. It has a population of some 240,000.

Located on the coast of the Persian Gulf, Ajman also controls two small inland exclaves: Manama and Masfut, both of which are primarily agricultural. Approximately 95% of the population of the emirate resides in the city of Ajman, which forms part of the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Ajman is ruled by Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi of the Al Nuaimi tribe. The Crown Prince of the Emirate is Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi.

Ajman Free Zone (Arabic: منطقه عجمان الحره) is a free trade zone in Ajman, one of seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates located on the Arabian Peninsula and in the Persian Gulf. The zone was established in 1988 and was granted autonomous status under the Amiri decree no.3 of 1996 issued by H.H. Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, ruler of Ajman. Ajman Free Zone Authority has been named as the sole regulatory agency for Free Zone in the Ajman.

The formation of the Free Zone Authority in 1996 has given impetus to industrial activity in the Free Zone which has resulted in quadruple growth in the number of companies during the last few years. A multi-million Dirhams development plan on over a mission square metre area is under progress at the Free Zone, which on completion will be able to accommodate 4000 companies. (More...)
