    Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, has progressed and developed rapidly to become one of the leading cosmopolitans in the world.

    The Concept

    The Falcon Economy is a concept that highlights the UAE region’s economic growth and its macroeconomic stability, despite global market challenges. Driven by its strategic vision, the UAE in particular, has continued to raise standards of living and attract talent, particularly as it uses its financial resources to invest in key growth drivers of transformation, including diversification, world-class infrastructure, and digitalisation.

    The Gulf Falcons

    One of the most notable outcomes from the 2022 edition of Abu Dhabi Finance Week (ADFW) was the unveiling of the Falcon Economy concept, which symbolizes the UAE’s economic ascent supported by Abu Dhabi’s growth as a leading global business hub.

    During the ADFW keynote presentation, The Economic Transformation of the Middle East, chief economist, Dr Nasser Saidi, explains how the region is becoming a global financial powerhouse through the role of the SWFs and international financial centres, by driving greater economic integration and transformation, with investment focused on new and disruptive technologies. Dr Saidi produced a report that provides further information on the region’s economic transformation in The Rise of the Gulf Falcons Report.
