Although the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is still facing some economic challenges, particularly in relation to fluctuating oil prices and global oversupply, the situation is improving.
Concerns about dependence on oil and growing inflation mean that diversification is top of the UAE’s agenda for its long-term strategy for success and stability, as well as a move to create more opportunities for nationals.
The best opportunities are likely to be in non-oil and non-financial industries such as ICT, fast-moving consumer goods and the retail sector. The majority of jobs are likely to be found in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
