Partner City



Dubai has rapidly grown as a global hub for trade and commerce, transitioning from an economy dependent on oil to the creation of a knowledge based economy that has been the turning point in the emirate’s march towards progress and prosperity. Owing to advanced and innovative talent, resources and infrastructure, Dubai today has become a world-class destination that is a melting pot of cultures and dynamic destination offerings.
This resilient growth also lies in the UAE’s visionary leadership that has announced a vision for the future, revolving around sustainability and innovation as the engines of growth. While state-led progress may not be unique to the region, it is Dubai’s twin-tracked approach of creating knowledge and skills within the city while attracting foreign investment and global expertise to spur socio-economic growth that reaches far beyond the borders of the emirate, cementing its impressive reputation on the global stage.
