United Arab Emirates Country Risk Report Q4 2015 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Sep 28 2015


We expect relatively solid growth over the coming quarters, with real GDP forecast to expand 4.0% and 3.8% in 2015 and 2016 respectively.

We expect Dubai to outperform Abu Dhabi, with the former benefitting from increased activity in the trade and tourism sectors, in addition to our expectation that the all-important real estate industry is now set for sustained growth.

Credit growth to the private sector will remain relatively slow through 2015 as commercial banks continue to increase provisioning against potential loan losses due to the debt funding cliff.

Major Forecast Changes

On the back of weaker oil prices, we have lowered our forecast for the UAE's fiscal surplus from 3.5% to -5.8% in 2015.

Key Risks To Outlook

Any attack by Islamist militants would result in a fundamental reappraisal of both the UAE's, and the wider region, risk profile.

A further uptick in tensions between the West and Iran could result in a deterioration in the UAE's sovereign risk profile given the close proximity and deep trade ties between the two countries.
