Much of this is attributed to the openness of the city’s economy and the collaborations with countries worldwide. This allowed for luring global markets, improving investment flows, and boosted tourism as well as foreign trade, he added.
BRL has also emphasized the importance of developing economic and governmental performance to make Dubai a model at all levels.
This will include procuring licensing for corporations and developing services to cater to the private sector.
