Dubai is no longer the desert village that used to be involved in trading and minor oil production at one time. The city has come a long way and has seen some tremendous growth and has transformed into a global investment and tourism hub.
Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, once summed up his ambitions for the city in a simple sentence: “We want to be No. 1.”
So their strategy is simple – to go big and bold. No wonder the emirate keeps on announcing headline-grabbing projects.
