Dubai is awake again.  Whilst it's still not to the Dubai I knew before the recession, there are plenty of positive signs.  I used the Sheikh Zayed road to measure the activity level on a previous trip.  This time I was actually stuck in traffic on a few occasions.  There are still unfinished buildings with no obvious signs of any work in progress; but roads, shops and restaurants are reasonably busy.  With the summer heat, malls feel busier and I'm told hotels are taking more and more bookings for the summer.


Work-wise, some of the projects previously on hold have been dusted off and are taking shape - even if only on paper.  In all my meetings, I sensed a readiness to do business again.


I hope this continues and I wish Dubai all the best.
