Dubai’s pace of development is unmatched

“If history is to be considered, the future of Dubai is enormously bright. God Bless His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. He is grooming the Crown Prince, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, which gives the business community the confidence that these policies and vision will continue far into the future,” Shahdadpuri says.

He says there are ample opportunities to grow for all types and sizes of business, be it small, medium or large. “Any particular sector of business, or profession, you will find your appropriate place to grow here.”
