In reality, plenty of recently emerging evidence confirms the position of Dubai as an exceptional business hub within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Simultaneously, the facts substantiate Dubai's ability in overcoming challenges, no matter how difficult they may initially look like.
For instance, in September, Dubai Metro started operation of the Green Line of this pioneering project. The development means that all but two of the 47 stations are operational. In retrospect, the 29-station Red Line was opened for the general public in September 2009 not long before the revelation of Dubai's debt problem. Yet, much to its credit, Dubai succeeded in completing the project despite all odds.
