The design-and-build package winner is a Saudi Arabian construction company (not SBL Group) that I forgot the name.

I hate it when people think, Dubai's economy is based on oil!
People like that don't have a clue about the city
Only <5% of Dubai's economy is based on oil!
Please just write facts and correct information here and not just any prejudices!

1.Oil revenues are expected to account for only 4 per cent of government revenue, last year it was 3.6%

2. How do you expect Dubai to expand without electricity (Energy)?

What's not to get? Dubai is a city in the Middle East, therefore its entire economy must be based on oil and nothing else.

After a few years here you'll see people regularly sign up to this forum just to post that in threads of projects in the ME region, Dubai in particular.

LOL before we were talking about Dubai economy and we are talking about the UAE. I just want you to know that you are the only one who deflects or re frame your own words.

Btw thats old coz oil contributes on 30% ONLY on the UAE economy which comes from the capital Abu Dhabi. they also have a plan to make 20%.
