“It’s important to spread the prices ....". It is indeed and one way to attract a more financially diverse audience is to emphasise the role of sponsorship in holding down prices. Also packages (dinner, event and hotel room) will make some sense to patrons who want a great night out without the usual traffic distractions.

First off, I don't know the issues of producing in a NZ, However at this point I don't like the idea of neutral zone. It sounds too much like DMZ line. Assuming that the rule of capture is used on the NZ for producing production. The amount of production from a giving well in a NZ area to produce at maximum allowable for the life of a well based on the porosity and permeability factor in to the drainage equation could still exceed the width of the NZ over time causing conflict at a later date.

I agree with WHJ. I travel weekly to Europe and believe me some 3 stars Michelin are not worth it when 1 star are awesome. Example of La petite maison . The Dubai version is far better compare to Paris and London. Only Nice version ( the original one) is equal just because they have the fresh products available 365/365 daily. The issue of Star Michelin is mainly the fact that few chefs totally unknown in the real 'Food passion' world come her hoping to use the Michelin brand to open a random place and make it a success ( example Clef in DIFC who was a total disaster). I am sure in the future a 1 star Michelin will open here. But lets not forget they cannot be financially viable unless they sell alcohol and license are only in Hotels or free zone and its a main problem ( Guy Savoy tried in Qatar and when they ban alcohol he closed it...)

Respected Madam, Salaamwalaikum. I want to see Qatar University replacing best names like Oxford etc. The concept of University started from Islam then why partnership with international universities. Instead, best talents can be acquired, it will not only increase the level of education but also increase the reputation of the university. why not to make such university where foreign students compete to join. I see lot of Qatari students going out to study, why?. They want more standards and disciplines.
I pray for all the prosperity to the Qatar. Ameen.

They are going to need to drop significantly more if the hundreds of hotels are looking to continue to attract international tourists for either few day stop overs or holidays.

Coincidentally, I have ended up speaking in passing to several random holiday makers recently at various hotels, they have all commented that as regular visitors that the cost these last few years and particularly this year of everything surrounding their stay, from F&B to shopping etc has really surprised them at how expensive it has become, to the point where they probably wont be making the trip again...........

The Middle East are the largest customers to Boeing currently, the GCC Carriers are in actual fact creating jobs within the U.S. economy, this element is being completely overlooked!

The following is even taken from Boeing's website:

Boeing has forecast that the Middle East will require 3,310 new airplanes, worth an estimated $770 billion, over a 20-year period from 2016 to 2035. While about 45 percent of that demand will be for single-aisle airplanes, 53 percent will be for small, medium and large widebody airplanes, and the remaining two percent are demand for regional jets.

Dubai-based Emirates Airline is currently the world’s largest operator of the 777 with more than 150 of the airplanes its fleet. In August 2016.

American Carriers should stop being so short-sighted!

UAE governments need to address the Road safety issues as soon as possible or death on the road will continue to grow as population grow and cars on the roads by facto. Driving daily from Dubai to Abu Dhabi and the reality of dangers in over speeding, not keeping space between cars is flagrant. With all my respect for locals drivers but at least 2 out of 3 issues I face daily on SZR come from 4x4 driven like crazy by local ( Pajero, Land cruiser, Patrol). People need to be teach how to drive safely and respect the rules as they put in danger life of others and their own as well. And if teaching is not enough big fines . It's a criminal act to drive as some people drive as death is the result in many cases....
