Why the United Arab Emirates?
The Trade Hub of the Middle East and Africa
The United Arab Emirates is located in the heart of the crossroads of the trade routes of East and West, Europe and Asia. It helps to organize effectively an international trade flow with the minimal costs. There are modern sea and air transport companies, ports and airports in the UAE, which are connected with all the leading international transport hubs, and which provide the possibility of delivering goods from and into any part of the world. The location of the country allows flying quickly to the UAE from a large number of countries – particularly from the Middle East, Europe, Asia or Africa.
High Level of Disposable Income
In 2016 the United Arab Emirates imported $270 billion USD worth of goods. Non-oil sectors now contribute about 70% of the UAE’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and according to International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasts, as of March 2018, it’s expected to be the second largest Arab economy after Saudi Arabia in terms of GDP (in current prices). The IMF expects UAE to be ranked 25th globally (in current price terms), with a GDP per capita of $37,346.
A Rapidly Developing Economy
It is not a secret for anybody that over the recent decades the United Arab Emirates has become a major international center of business activity. Interests of many large corporations and holding companies are concentrated here. Moreover, the Emirates began to take leading positions in the field of international tourism. The investment capitals, which flock to the Emirates from all over the world, are devoted to the implementation of many large-scale projects that contribute to the active development of the economy in the country. The year to year increasing domestic consumer demand on the import of goods, which are necessary for the local requirements, as well as a significant increase in the volumes of export and re-export, also plays an important role for taking decisions about entering the market in the United Arab Emirates.
Diversification of Import/Export Industries
The strategies created by Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030, Dubai’s Strategic Plan 2015 and the UAE’s 2021 Vision are made to attract foreign capital into the industrial and other export-oriented sectors, including heavy industry, transport, petrochemicals, tourism, information technology, medical technologies, consumer goods, telecommunications, renewable energy, aviation and oil and gas services. In order to realize the expansion of these sectors and support economic diversification, the government has invested heavily in infrastructure and other development projects. Education is also one of the UAE government’s top priorities. The country is keen to -build a knowledge based economy and position itself as the academic hub in Gulf Region.
