Report: What does the future look like for the private sector in Abu Dhabi?

Text size +-

Abu Dhabi had already developed a vibrant digital economy prior to Covid-19, with advanced ICT infrastructure in place and a digital-first approach that meant public services were easily accessible online. The disruption of the pandemic served to accelerate digital transformation, strengthening the competitiveness of businesses in the process. With the world’s highest per capita vaccination rate, Abu Dhabi has been able to reopen its international borders, and the authorities are now firmly focused on the post-pandemic future. A string of policy announcements in 2021 seek to capitalise on the potential of Industry 4.0 and gain a competitive advantage in emerging industries. Meanwhile, ongoing reforms to educational curricula and public investment in skills training should give private companies the confidence that diversification and expansion plans in Abu Dhabi can be supported by local talent.
