Four new Dubai projects will add to Expo 2020's charm
-Aladdin City
Designed specially for the Dubai Creek, Aladdin City is an interesting hospitality project inspired by the tales of Aladdin and Sindbad.
-Deira Islands
Deira Islands, a project being developed by Nakheel, will add a unique touch of Arabian culture to the contemporary environment in the region. The project boasts four man-made islands which can be accessed by abras (traditional Emirati boats).
-Jewel of the Creek
Dubai International Real Estate has announced the Jewel of the Creek project in Dubai Creek. The project will feature five hospitality buildings, a hotel with serviced apartments and a ballroom with attached cafe. The project will be further elaborated with hard and soft landscaping and upon completion, the development will also feature one vehicular bridge, four foot bridges and a marina.
-Dubai Water Canal
When talking about new projects in Dubai, who can forget about the Dubai Water Canal? Beginning at the Dubai Creak and carving its way across Al Safa Park and Jumeirah towards the beach, the Dubai Water Canal is steadily inching towards completion.
For some youths, the Expo 2020 marks start of their careers. The Expo 2020 Apprentice Programme has officially begun with 27 apprentices roped in for its Dubai site office in Dubai South. The first cohort of the pioneering programme includes UAE-based graduates under the age of 28 from 14 different nationalities. Officials said this reflects the wide-ranging interest in Expo 2020 Dubai and the UAE's multicultural society.
