While Dubai’s reputation as an important maritime trade and air transport centre is already well established, the emirate is also rapidly emerging as a leader in transport and logistics innovation. Dubai’s transport and logistics sector experienced strong growth in 2019, continuing to underpin the emirate’s wider economy. Much of the current investment activity in the sector is being injected into transport infrastructure projects for Dubai Expo 2020, which is expected to attract over 25m visitors. However, the local government is also considering the long term, and there is a strong pipeline of transport infrastructure projects planned under the Traffic and Transportation Plan 2030, the emirate’s overarching long-term transport development programme, to expand roads, airport capacity and public transport routes.
