Dubai named one of the world’s most influential cities
19 August, 2014
Dubai has been ranked the world’s seventh most influential city by Forbes magazine. The high ranking was boosted by the city’s top spot in the world for air connectivity, Forbes said, with non-stop flights at least three times a week to 93 per cent of global cities outside of its home region. Dubai also has the world’s largest terminal and an even larger airport being built. And the financial capital’s location and “business-friendly” climate make it a favourite for companies interested in establishing a Middle East presence, Forbes said.
