He stated that Dubai was emerging as the first destination for foreign direct investment in the tourist industry indicating investors’ rising trust in the emirate and improving its position as a worldwide trade and investment hub.

“We will continue our efforts to solidify Dubai’s status as a crucial worldwide centre for attracting investments and a significant engine of the global economy,” Sheikh Hamdan added.

Dubai’s robust infrastructure, business-friendly policies, and flexible regulatory environment, according to the Crown Prince, will maintain the city at the forefront of the world’s FDI destinations.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed stated that Dubai’s world-class infrastructure and great investor services underline the city’s aim to become the finest city in the world to live, work, and visit.

In 2021, the UAE had the most significant legislative reforms in its history, including multi-entry visas for multinational corporations, positioning the country among the most competitive economies and easy-to-do businesses.

Dubai received 7.28 million foreign visitors in 2021, a 32% rise year on year, highlighting the city’s ambitions to become the world’s most visited destination.

According to the Dubai Investment Development Agency’s (Dubai FDI) Dubai FDI Monitor report, 30 foreign direct investment projects produced 5,545 new employment in Dubai last year.

In the last five years, the emirate has attracted Dh83.5 billion in foreign investments through 205 FDI projects, creating over 30,000 employment and putting Dubai ahead of London, Paris, and Shanghai.

Overall, the value of overall FDI capital flows into all industries in Dubai hit Dh26 billion in 2021, representing a 5.5% increase over the previous year.

“Dubai’s top position in terms of employment produced by FDI into tourism demonstrates that the city’s excellent investment climate will continue to attract, retain, and expand both financial and human capital,” said Fahad Al Gergawi, CEO of Dubai FDI.

Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourist (DET) Director-General Helal Saeed Almarri stated that the emirate has built a unique tourism proposal to market the emirate as the most sought-after global city and the most appealing destination to live, work, visit, and invest.

“Dubai has also undertaken coordinated efforts in major source markets to demonstrate its capabilities in facilitating corporate growth and as a premier global tourism destination.” “Dubai’s top ranking shows the efficiency of multi-geographic marketing as well as its diverse offering across industries,” he added.

“The new policies and regulations being implemented to align the UAE economy with global changes, as well as the long-term residency granted to investors and entrepreneurs, will see Dubai and its tourist industry retain the FDI momentum until 2022 and beyond,” Almarri noted.
