Dubai is the 21st century global city where East meets West and tourism meets commerce. One-third of the Earth’s population is just a four-hour flight away from Dubai. Thanks to growing trade and tourism, Dubai has become the fifth-highest performing metropolitan global economy.
The city’s thriving international business community, along with its tax-free status, climate and lifestyle benefits, has driven expat numbers. Should the current rate of population growth continue in Dubai, almost four million people will be searching for accommodation in the city by 2023.
