DUBAI (AFP) - Dubai said Monday it will repay in full $4 billion of debt maturing later this month from internal sources, as the Gulf emirates economy grows steadily after being severely hit by the global crisis. The Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD), which is the investment arm of the government of the city state, will cover the obligation from internal sources derived principally from cash dividends received from ICDs operating subsidiaries, the government said in a statement. This substantial repayment is the result of our strong portfolio of diverse and successful companies across Dubai, as well as the underlying strength of our economy, said Mohammed al-Shaibani, ICD chief executive officer. Dubai is witnessing a recovery and remains a stable financial centre. The Emirate continues to be an attractive destination for business, tourism and trade and has proven its resilience in recent times, he said.
