A look at Dubai's economy:
- Tourism, retail and real estate, which all show signs of being strongly affected by the present world downturn, together contribute around 30% percent of GDP.
- Financial services, hit heavily by the global crisis, contribute around 10 percent of GDP.
- The energy sector contributes only around 6 percent of GDP.
- Wholesale, transport and storage, which are also likely to be negatively affected, also contribute heavily to the economy.
The emirate's debt is estimated at roughly 100 percent of GDP.
