Dubai is in for a big change this year as the city prepares to open its first ever mall.
Dubai is planning to build a massive new shopping centre for about $1 billion and will open on April 1.
Dubay’s Dubai Mall will house more than 5,000 shops and more than 30 luxury malls.
It will include shopping centres with shops and apartments.
The project will include 1,400 luxury malls and 1,200 malls for shopping, retail and restaurants, as well as 1,300 malls for apartments.
It’s expected to create a new industry in the UAE with 2.8 million jobs and create more than 200,000 jobs across the country.
Dubais economy is projected to grow by 2.2 percent in 2020, while unemployment is expected to fall by 8.2 per cent.
The country’s gross domestic product is forecast to grow 1.7 percent in 2021, according to the World Bank.
