UAE unified government account surplus up 39.5% to AED 200.7 billion
Abu Dhabi: Real estate activities indicate that the recent global financial crisis has provided the necessary requirements for the growth of any local or international market. Its influence on government decisions is seen as a natural requirement, and evidence of a healthy economical process that calls for the protection of all investment practices.
Moreover, the public announcement of monetary policies by countries throughout the world is increasing confidence in these economies and their ability to face crises and resolve the negative mentality that has surrounded the investment process. It also encourages sustained real estate activity, and even an increase in growth rates, as well as a successful recovery process.
Commenting on the subject, Dr Abdul Rahman Al Tasan, CEO of Rakaa Properties, said, "The UAE's monetary policy has distinguished the country globally as transparent, whether in times of crisis or stability. The UAE unified government account holds a surplus AED 200.7 billion, which represents an increase of 39.5 percent from 2007, or AED 72.5 billion."
The UAE has 49 active commercial banks in the financial projects sector, including the Central Bank, the highest financial authority in the country, which has 763 branches across the UAE. The country also has two investment banks, 26 financing companies boasting 37 branches, 80 offices representing foreign countries in the UAE, and 105 exchange companies working through 457 offices throughout the UAE. These numbers reflect the growth of the banking sector, and its capability to adapt to various scenarios.
