Key role for Dubai's chief chairman

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum is expanding his responsabilities, having now a presence at or near the top of virtually all of the entities that make up Dubai Inc.
For example, as chairman of The Emirates Group and its eponymous airline, he transports the tourists and businessmen whose spending is a vital part of Dubai's GDP. At the same time, he is chairman of the Supreme Fiscal Committee, the ultimate holder of the emirate's purse strings, and chairman of the Supreme Council of Energy.
