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.
