S. recovery to help the emirate withstand negative shocks from the global economy, with growth set to reach 4 percent this year and next. Those “pull factors,” which also include increased demand from India, will compensate for any economic headwind from China’s slowdown, Raed Safadi, executive director of the economic research and policy division at the Dubai Department of Economic Development, told reporters at an investment conference in Dubai on Monday. Growth in trade, retail, tourism, aviation and logistics is already “into 4 percent territory,” he said. Earlier projections were for 3.5 percent growth this year, he said. Iran’s agreement with six world powers places curbs on its nuclear program in exchange for dissolving international economic sanctions.

Dubai is already benefiting from its proximity to Iran, Safadi said. Iran’s “dependency on Dubai as a hub” to help rebuild its infrastructure and connectivity is increasing, he said.
