Home to more than 150 nationalities, Dubai boasts the most modern amenities found anywhere in the world – both in its entrepreneurial business environment, and things to do, see and experience. As the Middle East’s fastest-growing, most dynamic and exciting cosmopolitan city, Dubai is a true melting pot of different cultures and lifestyles.
Dubai Means Business
The best way to understand Dubai’s wonders and achievements is to see them first-hand. The city has firmly established itself as a leading commercial and trade hub with a state-of-the-art infrastructure and a world-class business environment.
Dubai is at the center of a bustling region emerging as a major force within the global economy. A region that stretches from North Africa to South Asia and the Caspian Sea to South Africa – that comprises 42 countries and some of the world’s fastest growing emerging markets. Central to Dubai’s ethos is to be a city where it is easy to do business.
Expatriates comprise over 80% of Dubai’s population. More than 150 nationalities live and work together within a safe environment with a far lower crime rate than many other major international cities.
Dubai’s growing number of international firms, service companies, SMEs and financial institutions attract a highly skilled workforce. The city’s businesses and expatriate population enjoy tax-free benefits. Schools accredited to international standards and top healthcare facilities are plentiful. Superb recreational facilities include eight championship golf courses.
The UAE is well-known for its liberal outlook and commitment to free trade. Contrary to popular belief, only 30% of UAE GDP comes from oil revenues. Within Dubai’s own diverse, robust economy this figure is closer to 7%. Its modern business infrastructure includes a high-quality and high-tech commercial office environment. This is frequently within free-zones allowing 100% foreign owned businesses and complete tax-free repatriation of revenue earnings.
