The Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 is a comprehensive plan from the Government of Abu Dhabi for the long-term transformation and diversification of the Emirate’s economy. It is a blueprint for creating a reduced reliance on the oil sector as a source of economic activity, a greater focus on knowledge-based industries and a significant increase in the contribution of other sectors to the Emirate’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by the year 2030.
It identifies two key priority areas for economic development in Abu Dhabi: building a sustainable economy, and ensuring a balanced social and regional economic development approach that brings benefits to all.
The Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 identifies the Government’s immediate economic priorities: building an open, efficient, effective and globally integrated business environment; adopting a disciplined fiscal policy that is responsive to economic cycles; establishing a resilient monetary and financial market environment with manageable levels of inflation; driving significant improvement in the efficiency of the labour market; developing a sufficient and resilient infrastructure capable of supporting anticipated economic growth; developing a highly skilled and highly productive workforce; and enabling financial markets to become the key financiers of economic sectors and projects.
It seeks to create significant opportunities for the local and international private sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, and new employment opportunities for UAE Nationals in the future, particularly in highly skilled, knowledge-based and export-oriented sectors.
