Dubai Strategic Plan 2015

The Dubai Strategic Plan 2015 was announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Prime Minister and Vice President, and Ruler of Dubai, on the 3rd of February, 2007. The Dubai Strategic Plan (DSP), launched under the theme “Dubai…Where The Future Begins”, sets out a strategic approach to develop the emirate’s most dynamic economic sectors.

“In 2005, we were successful in achieving the objectives of the 2010 plan. Therefore, we had to revise our plan, coming up with the 2006-2015 plan. Following a similar logic, the implications of the global financial crisis required that we revise our 2015 plan. The plan is currently under a careful review, wherein we are monitoring all the developments in the financial markets and the global economy. Should we feel that the timelines set for our initiatives need to be adjusted, we will adjust them in order to maintain a reasonable and actionable plan, and ensure the achievement of its objectives..” See the complete response by the Prime Minister to a question asked by resident Julian Becker, as well as the full e-session by the Prime Minister.

Dedica a H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Salve, mi chiamo Maria, da sempre affascinata dalla cultura Araba. Fin dalle scuole medie mi sono appassionata a tutto ciò che riguadava la civiltà, gli usi, la religione, il modo di porsi nei confronti della natura di questo grande popolo, appunto gli Arabi. Sono stata solo una volta nel mediooriente, perché purtroppo non ho molte occasioni di viaggiare, però per quel poco, ho cercato di immaganizzare quanto più possibile in termini di ricordi confortati da foto.

L’onda d’urto del terremoto innescato dalla crisi del fondo Dubai World è ormai alle spalle, i mercati internazionali sono orami più fiduciosi e le borse sono tornate a salire, ma quanto accaduto è destinato a cambiare l’equilibrio economico-finanziario dell’emirato di Dubai, governato dal reggente Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum. Saranno ridimensionati i progetti faraonici, come le palme (il progetto della Palm Deira è stato messo in stand-by), The World e i tanti grattacieli sempre più protesi verso l’alto. Sarà importante però recuperare la fiducia delle banche, in particolar modo delle grandi banche internazionali, sebbene parte del prestito miliardario che Abu Dhabi ha fatto, sarà usato dalla Dubai World per pagare i creditori, in buona parte banche, che hanno debiti in scadenza ad aprile 2010.
