    As an established developer (land preserving type) after some nice projects in the 80´s, I gave up in Dubai! As a land lover, you should´nt think about.

    And I had always been told that the Brits are so reserved.:D

    Frosty, that is a good article.

    One would think that the drug money from Afghanistan going though the "free ports" of the UAE would still have to be laundered by building more empty skyscrapers.

    To cds

    If I were you I would go there, take a look , you may not like it, the heat has to be experienced. your a good age.

    There is some cheap accom but prob not on the internet. Over on Diera side.

    Theres is a bus station from outside Carfours supermarket in Diera where the cheap accom is. Buy a bike!!! get around, buy a news paper talk, smile.

    Stay with the people you know that already got a job. Just talk and knock on doors.

    to Frosty

    I believe I can handle the heat, I train with the Army reserves as a Rifleman and we go through both extreams but my only concern is that I still work for a Riviera and things are looking pretty dry at the moment and my funds aren't exactly looking very well either. I'm really interested in going to Dubai and having even just a look but it would be nice to know if there is a good chance of getting work easily as I am a very hard, enthusiastic worker with much experience and education.

    To CDS You don't have temps in Aus like Dubai unless you trained in an oven.

    Don't tell people on the internet where you work now, or that Riveira are "dry" ---too late.

    AND never ever tell a potential employer to get back to you as soon as possible.

    You say "I hope -- or look forward to hear from you soon".

    Perhaps you need to be a little older.

    Hi Guys
    Forget about Dubai as alternative to Aussie or anywhere else for a while. Nothings happening here, three majors in UAE have gone down the gurgler with most smaller producers of GRP hulls laying of staff. Hundreds of expat and Filipino staff (including majority of glass laminators) have gone home.
    Airport car park gets a few lease cars departees just abandoned.
    Others are trying to sell their 30=45ft yachts off before going home.
    Its almost safe driving again with reduce traffic numbers.

    GC has dismised contractors and taken outwork inhouse.
    Al Jadaf dry docks hardstand syncrolift is down to 70% vessel under refit. Dealers of imported production hulls aren't moving stock and laying off.

    Contributing cause of problems - hugely overinflated real estate prices, everyone wanting 100 - 1000% profit plus poor planning.

    I predict the regions marine biz will start recovery later this year but build/construction...I estimate maybe 2 yrs earliest.

    Commercial yards in Abu Dhabi have just picked up serious big time contracts on grey boats so if you have electrical, m engineering or weapons systems training there is plenty opportunities - new builds and repair/maintenance.. try AD Ship building yard.

    Regarding the gets hot but its no biggy. Problem is when you leave...anything below 30 feels cold for a while.

    Luck to you all

    deadly right Frosty....
    Richard ıs a generous man, but he does not enjoy the lack of respect. İ fear that was a dead approach.
    Maybe a sort of apologize can correct that fault.
