A rival for The National?

According to a commenter:
It seems a new newspaper will soon be launched in Abu Dhabi. It's recruiting reporters -
Are you surprised to hear this? Is there a market for more newspapers in the UAE? I thought the ad market was drying up.

The ad points to "the projected launch of a new local daily print publication for Abu Dhabi" by "a successful local publisher (small, well-funded, profitable, keen, entrepreneurial) with a number of print, online and video products".

More interestingly, they seem to be expecting some kind of Armageddon to break out among the seven-star hotels of the world-leading cultural capital of the UAE:
"this is not a job for those who like safety, an easy life, or the support infrastructure of a big organisation."
