Dubai’s Plans for Growth Beyond Expo 2020 Set for Analysis in Forthcoming Report
A new report by the global research and consultancy firm Oxford Business Group (OBG) on Dubai will look in detail at the emirate’s efforts to ensure long-term growth is sustainable by further diversifying the economy and boosting foreign investment.
The Report: Dubai 2020 will shine a spotlight on the sectors of the economy earmarked for expansion in the emirate, which include tourism, logistics, retail and IT.
It will also track the progress of the major infrastructure projects and other work under way in and around the city as Dubai’s preparations for hosting the Expo 2020 in October next year move into their final phase.
The British Business Group (BBG) has signed a first-time partnership agreement with OBG for its forthcoming publication. Under the agreement, BBG will help to produce The Report: Dubai 2020 and other content on Dubai and the UAE that will be made available across OBG’s platforms.
John Martin St. Valery, Chairman of the BBG for Dubai and Northern Emirates, said, “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Oxford Business Group as part of our commitment to providing members with greater access to market information to support their business interests.”
He added that the BBG’s strategy was to be a useful and current resource for members with the provision of market information and to create opportunities to learn best practice across industries. “Partnering with such an established and highly regarded source of business intelligence will be met with great interest and enthusiasm from our members,” he said.
Welcoming the BBG on board, Jana Treeck, OBG’s Managing Director for the Middle East, said these were exciting times for Dubai, with its efforts to tackle key challenges beginning to deliver results and hopes high for Expo 2020 and beyond.
“Real estate prices have gradually fallen, while a reduction in government fees will further strengthen the emirate’s role as a regional business hub by lowering costs. Furthermore, Expo 2020 is set to ensure that Dubai retains its position on the world stage in the coming months,” Treeck said. “These and the many other developments under way in Dubai will undoubtedly be of great interest to our readers and I’m thrilled that we will be benefiting from the BBG’s input as we embark on the research for our 2020 report.”
