Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the capital of the Emirate of Dubai. Located in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula on the coast of the Persian Gulf, Dubai aims to be the business hub of Western Asia. It is also a major global transport hub for passengers and cargo. Oil revenue helped accelerate the development of the city, which was already a major mercantile hub. Today, less than 5% of the emirate’s revenue comes from oil. A center for regional and international trade since the early 20th century, Dubai’s economy relies on revenues from trade, tourism, aviation, real estate, and financial services. According to government data, the population of Dubai is estimated at around 3.38 million as of January 2020.

Meanwhile, Dubai modern lifestyle has set it apart from the conservative perception in the region. Dubai is now recognized as a favorite holiday destination as well as a centre of business excellence. The presence of Fortune 500 companies already in Dubai, like IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and Cisco, attests to the region’s stability.
