IMF’s UAE forecast remains unchanged at 3%


The International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) forecast for the UAE’s economic growth remains unchanged at 3%. That’s despite downgrading its global forecast this year to 3.1%, from 3.3% in July, indicating a risk of a recession. The fund has also adjusted its forecast for 2016, from 3.8% to 3.6%. Its latest World Economic Outlook says the developed world is performing well, but emerging markets are weak, resulting in slower growth.
