Dubai tourism industry set to create more jobs
6 May 2014

Tourism has become a huge industry in Dubai ever since the emirate started to make a conscious effort to diversify its economy.

Over the last decade or so, an increasing number of people have headed to this part of the world in order to get some winter sun.

And a new report has suggested that continuing efforts to expand the tourism industry in Dubai will manifest itself in a spike in jobs.

Indeed, it has been claimed that tourism will create as many as 245,000 direct jobs over the next ten years.

This is equivalent to an annual growth rate of 4.1 per cent, according to the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Capital investment in the sector, meanwhile, is set to increase by an average of 4.5 per cent.

One of the main reasons for Dubai's popularity among tourists is its enviable collection of spectacular beaches, where visitors flock every day.ADNFCR-408-ID-801718025-ADNFCR
