About Dubai

 Dubai's success story as a world leader in enterprise and modernization has earned the city great  international  distinction and has made Dubai an important business, trading and tourism hotspot.  Dubai is a dynamic,  business-friendly city with a great track record for executing major projects.

 The Government is dedicated to making Dubai a leisure and entertainment capital of the world aiming  to bring  in 15 million tourists by the year 2010.Dubai is a modern cosmopolitan city and is home to a  mixture of more  than 185 ethnicities that live in a lively, international setting and has become an icon  for the 21st century. Dubai  has great pioneering new projects.

 The USD 15 billion expansion of the Emirates Airlines fleet and the USD 4 billion expansion of the  Dubai  International Airport area is a testament of this commitment to attain such a goal.

 Tracing the history of Dubai, its geographical nearness to India had made it an important port for  many  tradesmen. Dubai was known for its pearl exports until the 1930s but due to the World war and  Depression era  this industry dissipated. There were some border disputes with the various emirates  even after the formation of  the UAE. Electricity, telephone services and an airport were established in  Dubai in the 1950s, when the British  moved their local administrative offices from Sharjah to Dubai.  The town joined the newly independent country  of Qatar to set up a new monetary unit, the  Qatar/Dubai Riyal, after the deflation of the Gulf Rupee. Oil was  discovered in Dubai the same year,  after which the town granted concessions to international oil companies.  The discovery of oil led to a  massive influx of foreign, mainly Indian and Pakistani workers, into the city. As a  result, the  population of the city from 1968 to 1975 grew by over 300%, by some estimates.

On 2nd December 1971 Dubai, together with Abu Dhabi and five other emirates, formed the United  Arab Emirates after former protector Britain left the Persian Gulf in 1971. In 1973, Dubai joined the  other emirates to adopt a single, uniform currency: the UAE dirham. In the 1970s, Dubai continued to  grow from revenues generated from oil and trade even as the city saw an influx of Lebanese  immigrants fleeing the civil war in Lebanon. The Jebel Ali Free Zone, comprising the Jebel Ali port  (reputedly the world's largest man made port) was established in 1979, which provided foreign companies unrestricted import of labor and export capital.


 Dubai is considered to be an enviable real estate place in the world. Dubai is the fastest growing city   in the  world. Dubai is rated as a very safe place to reside. Dubai is actually very strategically located   and is not too far  from Europe, Asia or Africa. Dubai is earning the title as a tourists' city of the  world.  This is evident in the  numbers itself. The number of visitors to Dubai has grown from 1.8  million to  5.4 million in the past decade.
