Imports in United Arab Emirates
United Arab Emirates - ImportsThe economy shrank 7.8% in annual terms in the second quarter, according to the UAE Central Bank’s estimate, while non-oil GDP is expected to have plunged 9.3% in Q2, following Q1’s 2.7% softer drop. The readings reflected the slump in activity caused by the pandemic and the measures introduced to contain its spread. Employment declined in the quarter and consumer prices also fell, as subdued global and domestic demand drove oil prices down. Additionally, outward remittances also declined in Q2. However, available data suggests that the economy began to recover in Q3, with a gradual pickup in oil production in July and August, and the partial reopening of borders in early September. Nevertheless, a rise in new Covid-19 cases throughout August and September could lead to a tightening of restrictions, which bodes ill for private consumption in Q4.
