Addressing system has lost its way – The NationalBy
Ask a cab drive in Abu Dhabi to take you to the intersection of two streets, naming them, and he will. But try to get an address/locale/etc communicated and straightened out, you will be out of luck. This wealthy city has a lousy address system. Possibly the same in Dubai and elsewhere.
The fact is that in many of these very rich, rapidly developing countries, the address systems need rapid repair. You’d think they’d get on with it, here where there are lots of middle class people with money to spend, including on e-commerce purchases, which by the way require delivery to homes and offices.
