In defense of the DXB's, I think they've really played their cards well. UAE doesnt have much oil reserves so they focussed on making itself a hub for shopping and tourism ensuring FX flow into the country. Sure they have us Desi's doing a lot of their back office and high level work while they watch the show from their palaces, but you can't blame them for it!! We are the ones who are willing to work!

Gone are the days where the arabs spent carelessly, they're now looking to the future and looking to get max return on their money. Just look at their latest acquisition of ports across the globe, or developing themselves into a financial hub like spore/HK. I think we ought to give them credit.

Very correct. Dubai has less than 2% of its revenues from Oil (Abu Dhabi, which has oil, is different and they have different revenue streams for each Emirate). To the extent that Emirates (the airline) is a bigger contributor (2nd largest, if I'm not mistaken) to their economy than oil or other such revenues.

Thumbs up



Very few international cities have taken root and grown as fast or to a degree as great as Dubai has. Within a mere half century, this fishing village has transformed itself into the commercial capital of the entire Middle East. In 1880 during the regime of Sheikh Maktoum Bin Hasher Al Maktoum, this visionary leader initiated a policy aimed at attracting trade and enterprise to Dubai; his tax concessions encouraged several merchants to set up base in the emirate rather than elsewhere in the region. Dubai soon started emerging as a port of international prominence, thanks to British and other European vessels stopping by quite regularly. The foundations of a commercial powerhouse were thus taking shape, though very few at that time could have visualised Dubai as the cosmopolitan city it now is.

Correct - have you ever wondered why Dubai, which is OFF the international shipping routes and tucked away INSIDE the Persian Gulf is the premer port in the region and NOT Muscat which is bang on the Arabian Sea and the trade routes? To the extent that stuff that goes to Oman now comes to Dubai and gets shipped by road to Muscat where it should have landed in the first place...

The same number plates are on different cars. It is right, but fact is, it will be in different dates.





Once the owner of a plate number buys a new car, he swaps the number into his new ride, so that people know that this is his new ride.

In Dubai NO BODY is allowed to put the same number plate in more than a car (RULE)

They're just swapping the number from 'old' car to newer car....
