Exports and imports are common areas of study but re- exports as a thrust area has emerged in the recent past and is not clearly understood as to why countries resort to such strategies. A country like UAE with dominance in oil exports is expanding its scope into non oil sector focusing on re-exports. This paper aims at analyzing the factors such as cost efficiencies; asymmetric information, geographical factors and institutional support factors are evaluated through deductive approach.
