The above described situation leads to this emirate's being one of the world's most cosmopolitan places – hardly ¼ of the total of population is represented by ethnic Emirati. The advantage of such a 'nationality mixture' is nearly total absence of nationality-based conflicts.
The history of Dubai's development may be considered one of the most bright examples of extra-dynamic growth. Those controlling the city are sure to have weakness for large-scale projects – take the highest tower in the world (Burj Arab), a series of artificial islands (three Palms and the World) and a forthcoming Dubailand – an entertainment project that is to attract more that 45 additional projects to be realized on the territory of a big oasis.
Dubai's striving for growth does not seem to have any boundaries – and no limitations are placed on it, bringing up more and more ambitious plans like the largest mall in the world (Dubai Mall) or new airport to be built at Jebel Ali in addition to the present one that is considered the most loaded in the Middle East.
