He further stated, “The strength of His Highness’s idea and his steadfast determination to make it an actuality have allowed Dubai to overpower the most difficult global challenges, including the repercussions of the current worldwide health crisis, to make a destination that offers rich value for travellers whether they are staying for leisure or business.”
