The credit crisis in Dubai will be opened up for public discussion at the latest edition of the Doha Debates today.

The debate will argue the motion that ‘This House believes that Dubai is a bad idea’. The event will take place the Qatar Foundation headquarters at 7.30pm. Debates’ Chairman Tim Sebastian said there was huge sensitivity around the state of Dubai’s finances and a shortage of hard information.

“Our debate will pit some of Dubai’s strongest supporters against some of its fiercest critics. That way we hope to get an unusual insight into what Dubai stands for, what was the underlying concept and where it goes from here.”

A number of regional news outlets have said they will not be covering the event, Doha Debates organisers said yesterday.
