for IT professionals in the UAE, reflecting the excellent growth potential
of the IT sector, which according to the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and
Industry is expected to grow from USD 3.2 billion in 2009 to around USD

global IT firms and its efforts to promote e-governance and provide online
services have been key factors in creating exciting employment opportunities

and IT infrastructure as well as human resource as part of a strategy to
develop the UAE into a premier regional hub for IT, which will help expand
the country's economic base by tapping into a potential market of nearly
two billion people in Asia and the Middle East.
