UAE Merchandise Exports (USD bn)

Economic growth was likely robust but waned in H2 2022. Crude oil production in July–December grew at a softer annual pace than in the previous six months, as OPEC+ brought back quota cuts late last year. This likely reduced the oil sector’s contribution to growth. Regarding the non-oil sector, the private-sector PMI revealed conditions improved at a largely similar pace on average in H2 compared to H1. Economic activity should be slowing further so far this year. In January, oil production rose less than 4% year on year, while the PMI revealed that non-oil private-sector conditions improved at a softer pace in the first two months of 2023 relative to H2 last year. In geopolitics, the U.S. and other allies recently requested that the UAE stop reexports of critical goods to Russia; this could affect trade revenue.
