The best thing to do would be to forget about the tower and come back to check on it a year from now instead of analyzing its progress every single day.

They are very accurate , except for the UAE , which has grown dramatically since then , and ofcourse other countries of the region witnessed similar growth rates but not as high as the UAE which was at 12+%
