UAE central bank expects low growth in 2010

09 February 2010

The International Monetary Fund forecast last month that the UAE economy would grow zero to 1% in 2010 as the impact of Dubai's debt restructuring continues to be a drag on its performance. 'We don't contradict their prediction but the IMF changes their forecast from time to time,' Suweidi said.
