I can’t help but note that this article comes around the same time as the Financial Times runs an article entitled ‘Qatar embraces the extravagant’, discussing (amongst other things) Qatar’s opulent housing-island development The Pearl. That, and the relatively rude health of Qatar’s education city with talk of expansion, suggests that the chasm between Qatar and Dubai appears to be growing.
