The ICT industry is one of the major non-oil-and-gas-based industries in the UAE. In 2010, it contributed 3.2 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP). The UAE Government has invested in the development of ICT infrastructure with different free-trade zones and the ongoing installation of a fiber-optic network. In addition, the government's liberalized policy initiatives have induced market flexibility to attract multinationals. Investment opportunities are envisaged in the fixed-line, mobile-phone, hardware, software, and IT-services sectors.
