The 2006 Economic and Product Market Databook for Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Product Description
In performing various economic analyses for its clients, I have occasionally been asked to investigate the market potential for various products and services in United Arab Emirates. The purpose of this study is to understand the density of demand within United Arab Emirates and the extent to which Dubai might be used as a point of distribution within The Middle East. From an economic perspective, however, Dubai does not represent a population within rigid geographical boundaries, rather, it represents an area of dominant influence over markets in adjacent areas. This influence varies from one industry to another, but also from one period of time to another. In what follows, I summarize the economic potential for Dubai over the next five years for hundreds of industries, categories and products. The goal of this report is to report the real economic potential, or what an economist calls the latent demand, represented by Dubai when defined as an area of dominant influence. The reader needs to realize that latent demand may or may not represent real sales. For many items, latent demand is clearly observable in sales, as in the case for food or housing items. Consider, however, the category “satellite launch vehicles”. Clearly, there are no launch pads in Dubai used by the space industry to launch satellites. However, the core benefit of the vehicles (e.g. telecommunications, etc.) is “consumed” by the area served by Dubai. Without Dubai, in other words, the market for satellite launch vehicles would be lower for the population in United Arab Emirates, The Middle East, or the world in general. One needs to allocate, therefore, a portion of the worldwide economic demand for launch vehicles to both The Middle East and Dubai. The data presented are the result of various spatial econometric and time-series forecasting models which, for each category presented, are applied to forecast and allocate demand across all countries of the world and major distribution centers or centers of dominant influence within each country. This is accomplished knowing that economic fundamentals (e.g. income) generally vary from one city to another within a given country over time. In this report, I report the allocation for each category for Dubai as an area of dominant influence in United Arab Emirates and, potentially, The Middle East. Important Caveat. Category definitions may overlap. The sum of multiple categories, therefore, may double count.

2006 United Arab Emirates

Product Description
This unique electronic book on CD-ROM has an amazing collection of the finest federal documents and resources about the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Dubai, providing encyclopedic coverage of all aspects of the country. There is updated material about the ongoing controversy surrounding the sale of U.S. ports to DP World. UAE as described by the CIA: The Trucial States of the Persian Gulf coast granted the UK control of their defense and foreign affairs in 19th century treaties. In 1971, six of these states – Abu Zaby, ‘Ajman, Al Fujayrah, Ash Shariqah, Dubayy, and Umm al Qaywayn – merged to form the United Arab Emirates (UAE). They were joined in 1972 by Ra’s al Khaymah. The UAE’s per capita GDP is on par with those of leading West European nations. Its generosity with oil revenues and its moderate foreign policy stance have allowed the UAE to play a vital role in the affairs of the region. The UAE has an open economy with a high per capita income and a sizable annual trade surplus. Its wealth is based on oil and gas output (about 30% of GDP), and the fortunes of the economy fluctuate with the prices of those commodities. Since the discovery of oil in the UAE more than 30 years ago, the UAE has undergone a profound transformation from an impoverished region of small desert principalities to a modern state with a high standard of living. At present levels of production, oil and gas reserves should last for more than 100 years. The government has increased spending on job creation and infrastructure expansion and is opening up its utilities to greater private sector involvement. Higher oil revenue, strong liquidity, and cheap credit in 2005 led to a surge in asset prices (shares and real estate) and consumer inflation. Any sharp correction to the UAE’s equity markets could damage investor and consumer sentiment and affect bank asset quality. In April 2004, the UAE signed a Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) with Washington and in November 2004 agreed to undertake negotiations toward a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the US. The disc contains material from the State Department, Department of Defense, White House, and cabinet agencies including Agriculture, Energy, and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. There is complete information about geography, people, government, the economy, communications, transportation, military, and transnational issues.

Airline Hub: Airport, Spoke- hub distribution paradigm, Direct flight, Air travel, Cargo airline, Focus city, Dubai International Airport, Emirates , Dublin Airport, Aer Lingus, Depeaking

Product Description
An airline hub is an airport that an airline uses as a transfer point to get passengers to their intended destination. It is part of a hub and spoke model, where travelers moving between airports not served by direct flights change planes en route to their destinations. Many hubs of the airlines are also situated at airports in the cities of the respective head offices. Some airlines may use only a single hub, while other airlines use multiple hubs. Hubs are used for both passenger flights as well as cargo flights. Many airlines also utilize focus cities, which function much the same as hubs. Airlines may also use secondary hubs, a non-technical term for large focus cities. For most non-US airlines, it is more technically correct to use the term home base rather than hub as a majority of their flights are international and the so-called hubs are simply their home countries’ largest airports, such as Dubai International Airport for Emirates Airline or Dublin Airport for Aer Lingus. Indeed, the application of the term hub in such contexts is only recently popularized by American airline industry analysts and often contested by local commentators.

Vista Point ABU DHABI – United Arab Emirates

Description
Abu Dhabi is a perfect example of the awesome transformation of a poor desert emirate into one of the richest states in the world. The capital city of the largest of the United Arab Emirates is like something from the One Thousand And One Nights. The beautiful Heritage Village is situated opposite the imposing skyline of Abu Dhabi on an artificial island just off the coast, Wave Breaker Dam. In traditional small mud huts, various craftsmen demonstrate their skills to onlookers and show off a variety of leather goods and fine glassware. On the edge of the city in the bay of Al-Bateen is Dhow Harbour where the traditional Arabian boats are built manually. One of Abu Dhabi’s buildings surpasses all others, the legendary Emirates Palace, truly an hotel of the superlative. The cost of creating the Palace was enormous but it is now the source of much well-earned prestige. Almost overnight the Emirates has been catapulted from the Middle Ages into the twenty first century. Next to follow the oil boom is tourism and no doubt Abu Dhabi will make a fortune out of that, too!

Abu Dhabi – Ancient and Modern by Design

Dhabi Means Deer

The second largest city, and capitol of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi sits upon an island that is T-shaped, jutting out into the Persian Gulf from the west coast side.  The city of Abu Dhabi covers a huge area, some twenty six thousand square miles, and has a population estimated to be about 860,000 as of the year 2007.

The term Dhabi means deer in Arabic and some speculate that is a nickname for an original “man who chased deer” or even the “father of deer”.  Some of Bedouin origins claim that Umm Dhabi means “mother of the deer”.   Long ago Abu Dhabi had the name of milh, which means salt in Arabic.  This was most likely due to the saltiness of the water.  There is still an island on the coast of Abu Dhabi called milh.  In any case, the region is extremely ancient and contains lots of history.

 

Home of the Emirati Royal Family

As capitol of the seven emirates, Abu Dhabi holds the federal government’s most important offices and is home to the entire Emirati Royal Family.  The area has become a huge cosmopolitan populous and is growing rapidly.  The income average is quite high, causing the metropolis to become more and more westernized, surpassing most other Arab towns and cities in that respect.

 

Abu Dhabi signifies wealth and power

The city of Abu Dhabi is the industrial and political centre of the country.  Abu Dhabi represents fifteen percent of the GDP for the United Arab Emirates, and is home base to some financial institutions of extreme importance to the region.  The Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates, along with being the corporate headquarters to many multinational companies and corporations are based in Abu Dhabi.

As one of the largest oil producers in the world, Abu Dhabi strives to diversify the economy by way of investing in tourism and financial services.

 

Steeped in history

The emirate known now as Abu Dhabi was first settled around the third millennium BC, being mostly inhabited by nomadic herders and fishermen.  The modern Abu Dhabi can follow its roots back to tribal confederations that were of note back into the eighteenth century.  The Bani Yas tribe took control, including over Dubai until the nineteenth century when Dubai and Abu Dhabi parted company and went their own ways.  Abu Dhabi became known for camel herding and growing dates and other vegetables around several inland oasis such as Al-Ain and Liwa.  Pearl diving was a lucrative means of income, along with off coast fishing.

 

From pearls to petroleum

 

As petroleum became an important commodity in the late 1930’s drilling became another industry although when oil was located in 1958, it did not appear to be all that important.

In 1968, the UK announced it would withdraw from the Persian Gulf by 1971.  This led to independence for the Emirates and oil took on much more significance as an income source in the region.  Soon the traditional mud and thatch huts were replaced with modern buildings housing banks and boutiques and finally high rise buildings.  Abu Dhabi moved from being one of the most ancient parts of the world to one of the most stylish and modern.

 

Catering services international provide Abu Dhabi hotel recruitment and other services to the hospitality, catering and hotel trade.

Abu Dhabi Golf Championship 2010 Odds – 2010 Abu Dhabi Golf Championship

Abu Dhabi Golf Championship 2010 @ Golf Betting: The Abu Dhabi Golf Championship 2010 event is taking place at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club from January 21-24.

For the 4th year in a row, Emirates Palace is the Diamond sponsor of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship 2010 as part of its engagement and commitment to the golf sport community.

This will be the fifth renewal of the Abu Dhabi Championship; an event which has risen in stature with every year. This line-up is one of the very strongest we’ll see on the European Tour throughout 2010 and is emblematic of the shift in power towards the Middle East. All four previous winners were top-class, or about to become so. Paul Casey has won twice, along with Chris DiMarco and Martin Kaymer in what was the German’s breakthrough title. Each year, the places have been packed with world-class names. Of the 25 players to have registered a top-five finish, only six started the event at 100/1 or bigger.

”By sponsoring this event, the Emirates Palace has actively demonstrated its commitment and support to cultural and sports events the Emirate of Abu Dhabi is hosting. The sponsorship of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship underlines the Palace’s tireless efforts to raising the profile of the emirate as a major destination for world top class golf championships,” General Manager of Emirates Palace Hans Olbertz said.

One of the key elements of the Masters Odds Championship is its depth of field. Year after year, organiser Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority looks to attract a wide-diversity of golfing greats.

And with 120 internationally assembled players eyeing a total prize pot of US$2million, the Championship looks set to continue evolving as the Middle East becomes an increasingly top-of-mind stop of the sport.

The 126 man field for the 5th annual Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, taking place at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, is one of the strongest in the series’ history.
