Dubai, a world renowned city in the United Arab Emirates, and located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf, Dubai is one of the seven emirates that make up the country of the United Arab Emirates.
Dubai is a logical place to do business -- especially for global companies looking to tap into the international corporate world joining east with west. Despite fluctuations in real estate values the one consistent fact in the corporate world is where people do business is where people live, play and work and that is good for investment.
Dubai has been assessed as one of the best places to live in the Middle East with its cosmopolitan feel and its more relaxed atmosphere as compared to other more strict middle eastern countries. Dubai has emerged as a cosmopolitan metropolis that has grown steadily to become a global city and a business and cultural hub of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region. Although Dubai's economy was historically built on the oil industry, the emirate's Western-style model of business drives its economy with the main revenues now coming from tourism, real estate, and financial services.
