A senior official in the Dubai Government has stated that Dubaiâ€™s economy will experience a growth of 2.5 percent over 2009, going against the average global trend. Dubai Governmentâ€™s Chief Economist, Raed Safadi, added that the 2.5 percent estimate was still â€œconservativeâ€.
In addition to this Safadi also highlighted the continuing aim of the Dubai Government to be more transparent by being more open to share the records of the Emirate. Statistics released recently show that net visas issued by Dubai per day in the month of January were about 1,000.
The Government of Dubai also aims for the Emirate to grow by up to 6 percent annually till 2015. Safadi also commented on Dubaiâ€™s strategy of investing into its infrastructure to aid the incoming human capital, evident by the number of visas issued.
