Five-year Abu Dhabi Plan to diversify emirate's economy

An exhibition on the Abu Dhabi Plan to diversify the emirate’s oil-dominated economy is set to open to the public.

The five-year blueprint, designed to keep the emirate on track to its Economic Vision 2030, was revealed in the presence of members of the Royal family and government officials on Tuesday, reported The National.

The plan “aims to achieve Abu Dhabi’s vision in maintaining a safe and secure society, and building a sustainable, diversified, and globally open economy", said the report. It is an update of a policy launched in 2007.

The exhibition at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, explaining the plan and its goals, was to open to the public on Wednesday.

“This plan serves as a transitional step towards ensuring that the Abu Dhabi government achieves the emirate’s vision, through specifying the priorities and solving the challenges that face us today," said Maj Gen Mohammed Khalfan Al Romaithi, commander-in-chief of Abu Dhabi Police and a member of the Executive Council.

“The plan also provides a strong push towards excelling in government work and coordinating all efforts towards meeting the objectives established by the plan."

It highlights five sectors – social development, economic development, infrastructure and environment, security, justice and safety, and government affairs – under which 25 key objectives and 83 programmes are planned.
