Dubai is strategically located on the world map that connects the growing gold and precious metal trade flows to and from the Indian subcontinent, South East Asia, Europe and Africa. More than 25% of the world’s physical god passed through Dubai, which is around $70 Billion in gold trading alone.

Long Term Lease vs Serviced Offices
How do you really need to work? When starting a new venture, there is a great temptation to jump straight in and acquire the space you anticipate requiring. However, it is no longer necessary to over commit on office space in the early stages of a start-up organisation.
Foray in France
Do not attempt to duplicate what you left behind; you will never be satisfied. You have to be open-minded and keep a smile on your face.
By Barney in Provence
Living in San Diego California, with an ongoing construction/refrigeration business and a wife who has loved her job of 16 years, you would think we were living the dream. So why would we fill up two ocean cargo containers with everything that we own plus our seven-year-old son and move to France? Europe is the future, that's why.
Do not attempt to duplicate what you left behind; you will never be satisfied. You have to be open-minded and keep a smile on your face. I have seen Americans in France who know two French words. They often ask for help and always start the conversation with "do you speak English?". Wrong. Assume the French do speak English, because they do. You will find 99% of the time their English is rather good, and you will find the help you're looking for. And if you always say "your English is super", well then you've made a new friend.
Make an effort to learn the rules and etiquette in everything you do, and if you don't know, then ask. The French will love the fact you want to know and that you're trying to fit in. The most important advice I can give, though, is that it gets better everyday. The cultural exchange will change you. How it changes you, however, is up to you.
All the best.
