Dubai has always being a haven for job seekers, who are ardent and hardworking. We have seen how futuristic the city has been in developing and materializing innovative concepts like the Burj Khalifa the tallest building in the world and the Metro Rail which was built in record time. Of course the shadow of recession has also hit hard the growth pace of Dubai, but even then it is a remarkable city with a magic in it to return back to its normal pace.
The exceptional vision and the dedication of the country’s leaders in developing this port city are outstanding and is a role model for all developing countries. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai is remembered for such transformations and his era is a golden one in molding Dubai to its current position.
Dubai Media City
Yet another milestone was created with the opening of Dubai Media city (DMC) – a hub for all media related work. It is a tax free zone within Dubai established by Dubai government under Dubai Holdings. It turned into a regional hub of media for GCC and Middle East. All giant media companies like BBC, CNN, Sony, ARN (Arab Radio Network), Reuters, Asianet, Showtime have the headquarters or presence there.
Dubai Media City Facilities
The infrastructure and facilities provided by the company included fiber optic cables already laid for firms to set up easily and the relaxation of visa and operational formalities. So these infrastructural and process relaxations attracted companies and this strengthened DMC for every kind of media business. This broadly includes media and marketing services, printing and publishing, music, film, new media, public relations, leisure and entertainment, new media, broadcasting and information agencies.
