===============================Seriously, this is the name of this structure, Dubai Gate



Dubai’s gain…and possible painIn 2003 the UAE took over from Germany the position of largest exporter to Iran, according to UN figures. These sales, mostly in the form of re-exports through Dubai, more than doubled over the subsequent two years, reaching US$7.3bn in 2005, with the UAE’s share of total exports to Iran rising from 12% to 19% over the same period. Indications from the US administration that it is considering imposing stricter export controls for US-origin goods trans-shipped through the UAE, as part of the squeeze on Iran, have therefore been met with some alarm in the Gulf state. However, according to an unnamed US official quoted by the Financial Times, the administration has no immediate plans to include the UAE on a new list of countries designated “destinations of diversion concern”. The official described a UAE export control law, which was recently approved by the cabinet, as a positive development.

Iran has taken the top spot as Dubai’s main export market, surpassing India and major European countries, a new report has revealed.The Islamic Republic accounted for a 15 per cent share of total exports from Dubai between 2002 and 2006, data released by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) yesterday showed.

Iran imported goods worth Dh94.3 billion from Dubai’s total exports of Dh621.4bn during the five-year period, however the market was growing at a lower yearly rate than the 28 per cent average annual growth of total exports.

The UAE has been a global gateway for Iran and its most important global trading partner, with trade between the two countries – mainly exports from the UAE to Iran – reaching more than $11bn (Dh40.3bn) in 2006 alone.
