Media is one of the first industries that the emirate of Dubai has sought to develop through a number of micro-cities. Dubai Media City has helped to make Dubai the media hub for the region, encompassing both the creation of media, from print through television and new media, and the advertising and marketing industry.

A number of international news organizations, including Reuters, Associated Press, Agence France Press, Bloomberg, Dow Jones Newswires, CNN and the BBC, all have a presence in Dubai Media City, and enjoy complete freedom to report on local and regional events.

The leading English-language newspapers based in the UAE are:

* The National
* Gulf News, the highest circulating broadsheet
* Khaleej Times, the second-highest circulating broadsheet
* 7DAYS, the highest circulating tabloid
* Emirates Business UAE business newspaper
* Xpress, a tabloid published every Thursday, by Gulf News

From late 2007, the international editions of The Times of London and its sister paper The Sunday Times are printed in Dubai for local distribution.

The Association of Journalists caters only to those who work for the government owned media . Membership is denied to media professionals who do not work for state owned media, and excludes online media professionals. According to its members section only the 29 local journalists’ members who work for the state-owned media can vote and participate in decision making, thus the decisions do not represent the interests of all journalists. Also, only journalists working for the state owned media can benefit from the free legal protection scheme should they encounter ‘legal disputes’ especially when both the victim and the accused happen to be both journalists. In the case reported by Abdullah, A (2005) member of the state-owned association had legal support while the other journalist working for a TV station owned by a private investor was denied legal help.


UAE has 2.3 million internet users.

Internet access is often filtered over the local proxy server of the telecommunication company Etisalat.[40] Etisalat blocks access to sites it deems controversial. All websites of Israeli origin — ending with .il — are blocked in UAE. Gay themed websites are also blocked. VoIP is blocked, however officials have never released a clear statement concerning the reason for this. The only statement released is that the UAE has no regulation for VoIP and only the local telecommunication companies are allowed to use this technology.

Du which is also an Internet provider is also filtering the content and use now the same policy than Etisalat. One of the new website blocked is Flickr. YouTube too has some of its content blocked. Even for the Media (eg.: Dubai Media City) the ban occurred. The relative cost of broadband services in the U.A.E compared to Europe is high, for example a 2 Mbit/s connection costs AED349 (95 USD) per month from Etisalat or Du.

Travel Quotes:

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. Benjamin Disraeli

I have wandered all my life, and I have also traveled; the difference between the two being this, that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment. Hilaire Belloc
