Its cutting-edge physical and digital infrastructure inherited from Expo 2020 Dubai-the first World Expo to be held in the region–and its location between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, in close proximity to what will be the world’s largest airport, places it at the centre of the acceleration of Dubai’s development.
