Abu Dhabi -  The UAE economy grew by 0.8% last year, due to the expansion in the non-oil sector, as shown by official figures on Tuesday.

The oil sector declined by around 3% due to lower production levels, in line with the OPEC-led output agreement.

The growth of the second largest economy in the Arab World is expected to be supported by the rising oil prices and government spending this year.
