Dubai’s economic growth has been built on creating clusters of similar businesses in a range of free trade zones, with the existing 26 free zones accounting for more than 30% of the Emirate’s economy.  This traditional model is now being refined in the light of changing global trends, which will result in changes to the future pattern of clusters of economic activity across the city.
