As another great exhibition comes to a close, more people have more interest in visiting Dubai more often, making Dubai another popular destination. Then I remind myself of yet another astonishing fact. Dubai Airport is now declared the busiest international airport in the world, counting the number of passengers that travel through Dubai, outbound, inbound and in transit.

The Travel industry consists of the airline that brings in the passengers, the airports that the passengers pass through to reach their destination. Would the market be saturated, when the airport has the most number of footfall in any given month? What would be the measurement of growth?

Reminding myself of how quickly time passes by. I had just recently written a blog for the Arabian Travel Market (2014) edition thinking of the future of tourism in our city of Dubai. It affectively boosted the tourist industry in the city, and the country of United Arab Emirates. As more holiday makers visit Dubai, more people learn about the wonderful place this really is, and as a whole improve the economy, not just in Dubai, not just in UAE but the whole of the Arabian Gulf.

Do comment on what your opinions are.

I would like to share some of my thoughts on the leaders (past and present) of a young nation i.e. United Arab Emirates. It must have started with the British rulers of the earlier colony, naming a president and the ruler of the country. The UAE, consisting of 7 smaller emirates or cities if you may will, to unite as a single bigger nation. Under the supervision and probably security of the British colony, the country was formed with Abu Dhabi (capital), Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras al Khaimah, Fujairah and Umm al Quwain, The leadership of Sheikh Zayed al Nayhan, president of UAE and ruler of Abu Dhabi, was highly commendable as the major income from oil was generated in the capital but well-distributed among the rest of the emirates, excluding Dubai. Sheikh Rashid al Maktoum, vice president of UAE and ruler of Dubai, has the to be named as the force behind the development within Dubai and UAE as a whole.

Here I would also like to share some pictures as published recently in the local newspaper, gulfnews.

The pictures really do highlight some of the nation’s stepping-stones during the growth and explosion of the expat population into the country.

Many will agree that the real building blocks of the country lie within the expat community who have been serving their lives here for their own personal developments first and also the development of the nation. The rulers must have seen the potential within the expat community which were helping to bring a relatively higher population growth, for the future of the country. They created rules and regulations for the influx of the expats, coming in first from the UK and later from the sub-continent.

I do remember my parents telling me stories of the ease with which visas were obtained for the family to arrive and the little checks that were carried out at the point of entry. And soon we were seeing hordes of families from India and Pakistan residing in the many blocks built for expat workers to stay.

Do see the pictures

Till later…..
