DETAILS

The Internet penetration rate in the UAE was more than 93% by the end of 2014, well above the region’s average. The two dominant operators reached a fixed network sharing agreement in late 2015 which will see their share the country’s fibre network. Generally speaking, e-commerce is growing in the stabilised markets of the Middle East and the UAE’s growing wealth and internet usage have spurred the development of e-commerce. Direct Carrier Billing services for m-commerce are also on the rise.

TELECOMS MARKET

Telecommunications in the United Arab Emirates is under the control and supervision of the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA. Until 2006 the Emirates Telecommunications Corporation (Etisalat) was the sole telephone and telecommunications provider for the UAE. In February 2006 this monopoly became a duopoly when a new telephone company and Internet Service Provider was established to offer mobile services across the UAE and Internet and TV services to some free zone areas. However, due to geographical distribution of service areas, the companies do not compete for customers and thus effectively operate as monopolies.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

The UAE has an open economy with a high per capita income and a sizable annual trade surplus. Successful efforts at economic diversification have reduced the portion of GDP based on oil and gas output to 25%. Since the discovery of oil in the UAE more than 30 years ago, the country has undergone a profound transformation from an impoverished region of small desert principalities to a modern state with a high standard of living. The government has increased spending on job creation and infrastructure expansion and is opening up utilities to greater private sector involvement. The country’s free trade zones – offering 100% foreign ownership and zero taxes – are helping to attract foreign investors.

After suffering the backlash of the global financial crisis of 2008, a $20 billion bailout from the UAE Central Bank and Abu Dhabi-emirate government, that was refinanced in March 2014, was key to establishing the foundation for a healthier economy.Dependence on oil, a large expatriate workforce, and growing inflation pressures are significant long-term challenges. The UAE’s strategic plan for the next few years focuses on economic diversification and creating more job opportunities for nationals through improved education and increased private sector employment.
