Tourism in the United Arab Emirates is growing rapidly, benefiting from an expanding range of regional and global air travel connections and improving accessibility for foreign visitors. Inbound arrivals are expected to show healthy growth throughout the forecast period to 2019, providing a valuable boost to other key market indicators including tourism-related expenditure and industry value. Given its stable political and economic environment, the UAE has no shortage of domestic and international investor interest, and the hotel sector continues to expand, supported by extensive government investment in transport infrastructure and other tourism-related infrastructure.
