20 Jul 2017@12:00 AM

The GDP of the UAE grew by a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 5% between 2010 and 2015 (according to 2005 prices in US dollars), while imports increased by an average of 7% during the same period of time. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia currently contributes only 1% of the UAE’s non-oil imports, while being a significant supplier of food products to the UAE, with nearly 5% of total UAE imports, at an estimated value of approximately SAR 3 billion. This Report identifies the UAE’s non-oil imports over the last five years, as well as KSA’s share therein. It also highlights opportunities for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in specific sectors, such as metals and jewelry, heavy machinery and electronics, automobiles and building materials. However, it does not include any services imported by the UAE.
