Dubai & UAE

Invest in the Middle East

The UAE’s per capita GDP is on a par with those of leading West European nations. Its high oil revenues and moderate foreign policy stance have allowed the UAE to play a vital role in the affairs of the region.

The UAE has avoided the “Arab Spring” unrest seen elsewhere in the Middle East, although in March 2011, political activists and intellectuals signed a petition calling for greater public participation in governance, which was widely circulated on the Internet.

In an effort to stem potential further unrest, the government announced a $1.6 billion, multi-year infrastructure investment plan for the poorer northern emirates and aggressively pursued advocates of political reform.

The UAE has an open economy with a high per capita income and a sizable annual trade surplus. Successful efforts at economic diversification have reduced the portion of GDP based on oil and gas output to 25%.

Since the discovery of oil in the UAE more than 30 years ago, the country has undergone a profound transformation, from an impoverished region of small desert principalities to a modern state with a high standard of living.

The government has increased spending on job creation and infrastructure expansion and is opening up utilities to greater private-sector involvement. The country’s free trade zones—offering 100% foreign ownership and zero taxes—are helping to attract foreign investors.

Dependence on oil, a large expatriate workforce, and growing inflation pressures are significant long-term challenges. Low oil prices have prompted the UAE to take steps to reduce its social spending, including eliminating fuel subsidies in August 2015, but the UAE has sufficient assets to cover its deficits with money from its sovereign investment funds.

The UAE’s strategic plan for the next few years focuses on economic diversification and the creation of more job opportunities for nationals through improved education and increased private-sector employment.
