Arabian Business counts down the giants of Dubai business in its latest top 50
With a combined market capitalisation of hundreds of billions of dirhams, Dubai's 50 biggest listed companies span a range of industries from construction, to banking, to healthcare, to retail.
While the list contained few new entries, the increase in market capitalisation of the emirate's top firms - particularly in the real estate and construction sectors - demonstrates the resilience of the Dubai economy following the property downturn of 2008-2009.
The list of Dubai's top 50 largest companies was based on the AED market capitalisation of Dubai Financial Market and NASDAQ Dubai listed companies at the close of trading on 23 August.
No government-owned entities or privately-held companies were included in the rankings.
