UAE: Infrastructure law revised to boost FDI
  • With Expo 2020 Dubai set to open 12 months from now, construction in the emirate has been rapid. We draw upon the experiences of previous hosts of such world fairs to identify potential rewards and risks, both tangible and intangible.
  • Despite slower growth expected this year, the UAE is forging ahead with improving its investment climate. Individual emirates are following through with business-friendly measures, notably Abu Dhabi's Ghadan 21 development accelerator programme.
  • In our view, the new measures should significantly boost the level of FDI across the UAE, raising its status as a business hub for global investment.
