United Arab Emirates Tourism Report Q4 2014

BMI continues to hold a broadly optimistic stance towards the UAE's tourism sector. We forecast 8.3%growth in tourist arrivals from all regions in 2014, with tourism receipts set to rise by around 9.4% in USdollar terms. However, we would also like to flag up some of the more intangible risks to our current upbeatforecasts. Over the past quarter, the regional threat posed by Islamic State (IS) has grown substantially. Tocombat this threat, the US and its regional allies (including the UAE) launched air and missile strikes inSyria for the first time on September 23 2014. This move substantially expands the military role of the ArabGulf states.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Jordan and Bahrain all took part in the military operation; although theirexact roles in the military action were unclear, they were reportedly involved in the bombing rather thanproviding purely logistical support. We believe that the US and its Arab allies will ramp up the campaignagainst IS in Syria over the coming weeks. This increased action against IS increases the risk of the UAEbeing targeted in revenge terrorist attacks by Islamist militants. Please see the Industry Risk/Reward ratingssection of this report for more information.
