About Dubai

In just 50 years, the visionary leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, following in the footsteps of his father before him, has transformed a sleepy fishing village on the coast of the Arabian Gulf into one of the most dynamic, modern and cosmopolitan cities in the world.

Dubai has become a business hub for an ever growing region, boosted by growth in key industries, business friendly policies and its strategic geographical location, offering reach to 4 billion people within an 8-hour flight, including Europe, Africa, India, China and Russia.

Dubai is also the place of choice for expatriate to live in, offering a safe and modern cosmopolitan environment, excellent infrastructures and services, with access to high quality healthcare, education and a wide array of leisure and retail choices.

As a matter of fact, Dubai was voted in 2010 as Middle East’s Best of Quality of Living City (Quality of Living global city rankings 2010 – Mercer survey) and ranked 1st place for Middle East FDI destination city ranking, by FDI Confidence Index (2010).
