The UAE is heavily investing in completing its five-star infrastructure system.

 

Both at the federal and individual emirate levels, major infrastructure projects have been announced throughout the country to support the country’s economic development plans and objectives over the next several years.

 

Opportunities for U.S. companies include all modes of transportation infrastructure, including rail, shipping, and air and include project requirements associated with developments in other sectors such as oil and gas. The Middle East is expected to invest approximately $80 billion over the next 10 years according to the U.S. RTA. Key projects include the $7 billion inter-Emirate Union Rail project, development of the new Port Khalifa, and expansion projects involving the international airports in the two largest emirates, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
