it's something I've been contemplating for quite some time now, but friends who live in that area are all indicating that expats are leaving in droves?! I know people usually exaggerate, but seems like the political tension in that area (specifically the proximity of the situation in Yemen) is hurting the economy. Is this a bad idea? I always liked the UAE, and now that laws are changing to allow 100% foreign ownership of a company, it seems more attractive than ever for me. Thoughts?
