Dubai emerged as a global city and business hub of the Middle East. It is also a major transport hub for passengers and cargo. Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. An economy with a GDP of US$ 370 Billion, Dubai has successfully diversified away from reliance on oil revenues and Aviation, Tourism, Real Estate, Financial Services and Retail now dominate.
Dubai is a relatively easy country to do business in, and this has been reflected in many international business surveys. Most notably, the country was ranked an impressive 26th out of 190 countries in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Survey for 2017. The UAE was ranked in first place for paying taxes, and also scored particularly highly for factors such as dealing with construction permits (4th) and protecting minority investors (9th). Doing business in Dubai may be remarkably similar to doing business in New York, London, or even in Paris. Arabic is the official language of the UAE, but English is widely spoken in business.
Connected by an extensive public transport system, it is easy to navigate Dubai via metro, bus etc. Taxis are also a convenient mode of transport around the city.
