Interesting turn in Dubai as the economic situation grows unstable. The effects of this will hit India. Their economy may be on a bit of a boom now. I expect this will impact it strongly.
Indians flee Dubai as dreams crash
[i]"Mumbai/DUBAI - JAN 14: It’s the great escape by Indians who’ve hit the dead-end in Dubai.
Local police have found at least 3,000 automobiles – sedans, SUVs, regulars – abandoned outside Dubai International Airport in the last four months. Police say most of the vehicles had keys in the ignition, a clear sign they were left behind by owners in a hurry to take flight.
The global economic crisis has brought Dubai’s economic progress, mirrored by its soaring towers and luxurious resorts, to a stuttering halt. Several people have been laid off in the past months after the realty boom started unraveling.
On the night of December 31, 2008 alone more than 80 vehicles were found at the airport. “Sixty cars were seized on the first day of this year,” director general of Airport Security, Mohammed Bin Thani, told DNA over the phone. On the same day, deputy director of traffic, colonel Saif Mohair Al Mazroui, said they seized 22 cars abandoned at a prohibited area in the airport."[/i]
