Outlook : Dubai

Dubai ... An Emirate, A Capital : Where East ... Meets West

What makes the world rush to Dubai?

Dubai, though only spread over an area of 3,986 km2 in the Arabian Peninsula, is one of the most dynamic of the Emirates. The whole world focuses its attention  on it.

At the crossroads of three continents, it is in the centre of a market that, along with the Indian subcontinents, accounts for over a billion people. Part of this market - the Arabian Gulf countries - has the highest income in the world.
