Every year we ask whether you are happy, and try to work out why - or why not. We track changes year on year to see how the nation is faring. There is no doubt the world economy is feeling a little fragile as we approach the mid-point of 2019, and an open economy like the UAE's cannot completely defy gravity. That said, there is significant investment going on in the UAE, and recently, a turnaround in business sentiment. Or at the very least green shoots.
Whether those shoots are tickling you is of course a different matter, and this is your chance to let us know. Are you happy? Are you feeling confident for 2020 as the Dubai Expo, finally, begins to loom into view? Or do you feel more challenges to the UAE are waiting on the horizon... We'd love to know.
