United Arab Emirates Freight Transport Report Q2 2015

Our view on the UAE's freight transport sector remains overwhelmingly positive. Although our forecast forreal GDP growth is for real GDP growth of 4.0% in 2015 - marginally stronger than the 3.9% we estimatedfor 2014, but slower than 2013's expansion of 5.2% - we expect that growth across most freight transportmodes will range between 5.0% and 11.0%, driven by a trade expansion of 6.4%. Port Khalifa will be theoutperformer, where we project that throughput will expand by 10.9%.The country dominates the freighttransport sector in the region and its continued expansion to its ports and airports, now being matched byinvestment into the developing rail network, will ensure this remains the case.
