Falling commercial and residential rents and reduced costs of doing business in Dubai are making the emirate attractive to potential investors, according to the director general of the Dubai Chamber. Hamad Buamim cited the law eliminating the minimum capital requirement for limited-liability companies (LLC) and the Central Bank’s decision to lower capital adequacy from 11 to 7 percent as reasons for Dubai’s attractiveness.

“It is important to maintain an optimistic outlook as we note down an increasing number of positive indicators — decreasing rents, lower expenses of businesses and cost of living, the recently introduced laws on abolishing the minimum capital requirement for LLC companies and the Central Bank’s decision to reduce capital adequacy from 11 per cent to 7 per cent,” Buamim said.

    Everyone is aware how things were prior to third quarter of 2008. I guess companies will be very cautious to start anything in Dubai. As operating cost could spiral up within a short span.

    To build people confidence, Dubai needs to do much more in way of maintaining the costs.
