Chairman’s Statement


From a reformist perspective 2018 was a landmark year for the UAE with the Government announcing and/or introducing a series of sweeping changes that are intended to have a positive impact on the country’s economy, fiscal policies, visa system and even the gender make-up of the Federal National Council, in the medium to long term. The UAE Government aims to prepare the country for a more prosperous future in a post-oil world, by creating a dynamic economic environment that will stimulate public & private sector investment, create jobs, spur innovation & technological advances across all key economic sectors and improve the overall quality of life of UAE residents at large.

We look forward to 2019 with measured optimism for profitable growth, in line with anticipated improvement in overall market conditions.
