The world economy has not fully recovered from the major downturn that began back in 2007. A lot of rapidly developing economies like Dubai have been hit seriously. However, the emirate has not suffered substantially from the economic fluctuations. It is true that some major construction development projects have been put on hold, but this important industry is still functioning well. There are a number of projects that have been completed recently with the most notable example being the Tower. The financial and tourism sectors have suffered some losses, but they are now recovering. All these economic effects are reflected in the Dubai job market.
