27 April 2010

UAE economy minister Sultan bin Saeed al-Mansouri has said that the country's economy is expected to grow by up to 2.5%, Reuters has reported. "Up to 2.5% GDP growth in 2010 depending on oil prices," Mansouri told reporters, when asked about growth this year. "Definitely this is a positive supporting element to reinforce our performance in terms of the GDP." Last month the minister forecast 3.2% growth this year. The government revises its figures as often as every month and gave no reason for the downgrade.
