Dubai shopping malls get bigger, blingier for Expo 2020

Mall operators in Dubai are plowing ahead with ambitious expansion projects, aiming to maximize customer traffic when the emirate hosts Expo 2020. Market watchers, meanwhile, warn that industry players are racing toward a saturation point.

Massive new complexes are sprouting up. Meydan One Mall, set to open in 2020, will feature more than 620 retail outlets. It will also house the world’s longest indoor ski slope and largest water fountain show, according to the operator.

At a groundbreaking ceremony on March 15, Meydan Chairman Saeed Humaid Al Tayer emphasized that the mall would provide both shopping and leisure activities in a single spot.

Expo 2020 Dubai and Jebel Ali Free Zone team up to offer Emirati youth more work training opportunities

Expo 2020 Dubai’s successful Apprenticeship Programme is being integrated with a corresponding scheme at Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) to give even more young Emiratis the chance to take a positive first step on the career ladder.

The Memorandum of Understanding means the tried and tested structure and content of the Expo programme will be absorbed into the existing Tumoohi (‘My Ambition’ in Arabic) scheme run by Jafza, the UAE’s flagship trade and logistics hub.

The aim is to provide an enhanced programme of more apprenticeship options that can boost the careers of increasing numbers of UAE graduates by combining knowledge and expertise from the on-the-job training they receive at the companies they join.
