Res­i­dency for ex­pats would be a boost for the econ­omy

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

All non UAE na­tion­als who have lived in the UAE for 15 years, or more, should be granted per­ma­nent res­i­dency - not cit­i­zen­ship - of the coun­try. This would pro­vide a boost to the real es­tate mar­ket; al­low­ing those born and ed­u­cated in the UAE to re­main, in­stead of be­ing forced to go to coun­tries which are in ef­fect for­eign to them; re­duce re­cruit­ment and other as­so­ci­ated labour costs; give ex­pa­tri­ates added se­cu­rity and en­sure knowl­edge, ex­pe­ri­ence and skills, that can be put to use by fu­ture gen­er­a­tions, are not lost.
