The Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 aims to achieve effective economic transformation of Abu Dhabi Emirate’s economic base and bring about global integration and enduring benefits to all. It draws up the framework and contents for the process of the development envisaged for the next two decades, and thus represents a roadmap for economic development of the emirate. In order to ensure greater focus and precision in the implementation of the policies and initiatives set out in the Economic Vision, a series of five-year economic plans and annual working plans will be developed. These detailed plans will allow for a regular assessment to measure the progress made against the goals and objectives embodied in the Vision.
The Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 is the result of a concentrated efforts between a number of public sector and joint public-private sector entities. Three entities have played an important role in the development of the vision which are the DEPARTMENT of ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, the Abu Dhabi Council for Economic Development and the General Secretariat of the Executive Council. The Economic Vision 2030 is of interest to all the institutions of public and private sector that have stake in the issues of development in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Therefore all such entities will participate in the implementation of the programs and policies set forth in this vision under the supervision and guidance of the three primary players.
The role of the DEPARTMENT of ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT (DED) in this aspired transition is to be the principal government organ that is charged with the implementation of the Abu Dhabi Economic vision 2030. The DED will spearhead the development and implementation of the five-year economic plans and the related annual working plans, based on the requirements of the vision and the directions of the Executive Council. In view of its important new role, the DED is evolving into an economic policy maker as well as facilitator and monitor in the endeavour to achieve economic development in the future.
