Arab Today, arab today UAE economy grows 3.3% amid regional uncertainty

DUBAI - QNA

The UAE economy is recovering in an increasingly uncertain regional environment, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said. \"Benefiting from high oil prices and strong demand from traditional trading partners, non-hydrocarbon GDP growth is projected to accelerate from 2.1 per cent in 2010 to 3.3 per cent in 2011,\" the IMF said in its latest updated country report, cited by the (Gulf News) Tuesday. The real estate overhang and short-term refinancing needs from overleveraged government-related entities (GREs) continue to weigh on the near-term outlook. \"Downside risks to the recovery relate to possible economic spill-overs of regional events, including the re-pricing of risk,\" it said. \"Nevertheless, the successful restructuring of Dubai World\'s debt improved market confidence, allowing top-grade Dubai issuers to regain market access. However, Dubai spreads remain high reflecting the risks posed by further potential debt restructuring needs,\" the report said. The IMF supported the UAE\'s response to the unfolding events in the region as \"appropriate\". The IMF advised the UAE to consider replacing the subsidies on water and electricity with cash transfers to lower-income households. Improved infrastructure in the northern emirates will help raise the standards of living in these areas. In light of the still fragile recovery, the IMF recommended that the country\'s short-term policies should focus on supporting domestic demand, and adjust to the economic spillover from unfolding regional events. \"An overall neutral fiscal policy stance following last year\'s fiscal contraction would support the economic recovery, while Dubai should consolidate,\" the report said. To ensure efficiency of spending, the government should undertake cost-benefit analyses and implement the projects that have high economic return. Public-private partnerships could help mitigate risks and help the government to push project implementation. The report comes a few days after Dubai\'s Supreme Fiscal Committee asked the government departments to reduce spending by 20-25 per cent that could help the emirate save up to Dh3.5 billion in the next two years. The IMF said the UAE Central Bank should be ready to inject liquidity should the market require.
