Dubai 2020 - Profile

Covering a total area of 83,600 sq km, the UAE borders Saudi Arabia to the west and south, and Oman to the east. Its coastline stretches from the south-eastern shore of the Gulf, nearly reaching the Strait of Hormuz in the north. By area, Dubai is the second largest of the emirates after Abu Dhabi, covering a total of around 4110 sq km. A series of land-reclamation projects beginning in the early 1990s increased the emirate’s geographic area by 200 sq km and also contributed to an expansion of its coastline. This chapter contains interviews with Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai; and Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali, Executive Director, Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau.
