“The UAE continues with its impressive expansionary path and its travel and tourism industry also remains upbeat about its long-term prospects. Strong growth is reflected in its hotels and airports, and its leisure and retail sectors. The 2010 opening of phase one of the Al Maktoum International Airport is a good example of our long-term confidence and planning. Other countries in the region are pursuing substantial tourism-related development projects of their own – a trend that bodes well for the future of the duty free industry and related businesses.”
