United Arab Emirates - Fiscal Balance

Economic activity was likely tepid in the second half of last year, although comprehensive data is still yet to be released. Non-oil private sector activity looks to have slowed, with the associated PMI slumping since the middle of the year on dissipating demand; however, gross credit lending expanded year-on-year in the same period. Oil output generally picked up in annual terms through end-2019, boding well for the all-important oil sector, but reflected marginal over-production with regards to agreed-upon OPEC+ production cuts. Turning to Q1 2020, soft dynamics seem to have carried over from the previous quarter, with January’s non-oil PMI signaling the sharpest deterioration in business conditions since August 2009. On a more positive note, a vast gas field measuring around 80 trillion cubic feet was discovered in the UAE in February, boding well for energy self-sufficiency.
