I know people who travel to Abu Dhabi and they can’t stop thinking about all the money they want to make.
Yes and no. It’s true that the UAE has a lot of money, but as a country it’s mostly just a place to make money (for Emiratis) and not a place to make real money. As a result, you won’t spend as much time in the UAE as you would in Dubai or London or Paris, where real money is spent.
The UAE is also a place where real money is spent, so in that sense you can compare Abu Dhabi to Dubai and London. But for other reasons, like the fact that real money is spent in Abu Dhabi, you can say the UAE is a place where real money is spent. But the Emiratis in Abu Dhabi dont really spend a lot of money, in fact they spend so little that its hard to make a rational comparison.
Abu Dhabi is a place that is not really a place where real money is spent. Money is not spent in the city. That’s because there are all sorts of things that go on every day that make it a place that money is spent. The city is a place where a lot of money is spent in a lot of ways. We saw this when we visited the city last summer and again this winter.
To say that Abu Dhabi is a place where little money is spent is an exaggeration. The Emiratis who live there (and who visit the city a lot) pay some of the highest taxes in the world for their government. So they have a lot of spending happening daily. I have never seen them spend much money on themselves.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of the UAE government. The whole thing with their “foreign workers tax,” and the whole “foreign worker tax” thing, is a scam. They’re not trying to fix their economy, they’re trying to artificially create a bubble in which they can manipulate the world for their own gain. I doubt this part of the story is true, but it is certainly a story worth talking about.
This story is like an old-school ad for Etihad Airways. As you probably know, Etihad is UAE’s largest airline by revenue. It has a business lounge in Abu Dhabi, which advertises quite heavily on the hotel and conference circuit. Etihad is also the country’s largest exporter, and has a large international workforce in the UAE. This is probably why you see the ad in the first place.
Etihad is a very important player for the UAE, and their business lounge is a big part of that. Also, the fact that they have a business lounge at all is extremely rare. It is, however, perfectly normal for the business lounge to be run by the same company that holds the entire airline industry.
Etihad runs a business lounge, but it is run by the same company that owns the airline. What’s more, the business lounge is run by a local company, and this is a very big deal for the UAE. The UAE’s first business lounge was run by the British Council, and this is a very different kind of business at a more local level.
Etihad runs a business lounge to promote the country as a place for business, culture, and tourism. It’s also run by the same people who run the airline, which is important to us because those people are our partners. As such, we want to promote the UAE as a business hub, which is an extremely important thing for anyone who wants to do business in a place like the UAE.
