Contruction boom is over for Dubai

DUBAI:The United Arab Emirates (UAE) began to bail out and consolidate Dubai's rattled banking sector and curb a building frenzy yesterday as the former boomtown started cutting state spending in the face of the global crisis.

In a major policy shift, the federal government will inject capital into Emirates Development Bank, a newly created rescue vehicle preparing to absorb merging Islamic lenders Amlak and Tamweel.

And in what marks the end of an era for Dubai, Mohamed Alabbar, a member of the emirate's ruling council, said the emirate would now pare its construction ambitions back in anticipation of waning demand after spending the past five years building as much property as fast as possible.

He assured investors the Gulf's regional financial hub of Dubai was able to meet its sovereign obligations.
