UAE Business Sectors gain momentum as the year progresses

Back to News

Last month’s fiscal upturn hit a new high as June’s business confidence for UAE gained momentum with new foreign investment inflows, strategic incentives for company formation in UAE, innovative marketing initiatives, and positive business sentiments stabilizing financials strains.

June made a significant output growth for the non-oil industry, stimulating higher yield from real-estate, media, health and creative sectors.

Head of Mena Research at Emirates NBD Khatija Haque revealed June’s headline purchasing managers index (PMI) managed to hit 2018-high, showing significant rise in both export and domestic new orders and output at the same time.

ICAEW regional director for the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa, Michael Armstrong claimed that UAE’ efforts to diversify its economy through evolving fiscal reforms are being well received within its economy, evidence to last month economic output. In a statement recorded by Khaleej Times, he elaborated by saying,

"We are encouraged by the recent announcements to reform business ownership laws and residency visa rules. This will definitely help in attracting more foreign direct investment and in creating more stability in the market,"

During June’s survey, Emirates NBD revealed a seven-month high output growth of the non-oil private sector and further accelerating for July. The report showed steep expansion of June’s client demand, promotional activity and business investment from both local and export markets, leading to a spike in company setup and job creation sectors.

During the month UAE also revealed its airport development and expansion project, investing
AED 85 billion ($23.16 billion) to enhance its current aircraft fleet and increase capacity of its airports to 300 million passengers per year. The announcement came from the organizers of the upcoming Global Investment in Aviation Summit (GIAS) set to take course from January 27th to 29th 2019.
