Manufacturing

According to data from the UAE Ministry of Economy, manufacturing contributed 14 per cent to the country’s GDP in 2014 and accounted for 53 per cent of the country’s non-oil exports. The UAE plans to attract $75 billion by 2025 into the country’s new industrial manufacturing sector. In his inaugural address at the world’s first Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit, Sultan Bin Saeed Al Mansouri also said the manufacturing sector will contribute as much as 25 per cent towards the country’s GDP by 2025. This expansion will be backed by government efforts to implement an industrialisation strategy.
