UAE central bank sees GDP growth at 7.6% this year, 3.9% in 2023
DUBAI, Dec 19 (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates' central bank expects real gross domestic product growth of 7.6% this year, an upward revision of more than a percentage point, while lowering expectations for growth next year, state news agency WAM said on Monday.
Real GDP was expected to grow 3.9% in 2023, revised down from a previous estimate. The UAE's economy minister said earlier this month GDP is expected to grow 6.5% this year, and more than 7% next year.
