Economic Vision 2030
Abu Dhabi’s multidecade economic development and diversification plan impacts almost every sector of the economy, from telecommunications and tourism to banking and business. The transformation envisioned by the plan is already taking shape, with early work ongoing at the Culture District at Saadiyat Island; dramatic enhancements recently completed at the international airport; and the upcoming opening of an iconic office and hotel tower at the city’s world-class exhibition and conference center.
By 2030, Abu Dhabi’s population is expected to more than triple. The emirate’s goal is to evolve from a resource-based economy to a knowledge-based one, and to boost the non-oil share of the economy to more than 60% of GDP, from just over 40% today. This emirate, located between blue seas and red dunes, has an ambitious plan for the future — but a great deal has already been accomplished.
