Managing change 
The UAE economy has remained somewhat resilient in comparison to other markets, as a result of diversification, government initiatives and the ease of doing business. Whilst the country’s economy has remained fairly impervious, tightening of liquidity across the GCC, the impact of low energy prices and a deceleration in financial growth, credit and increased regulation still remains a challenge for businesses this year.
Globally, the outlook remains somewhat strained with the IMF having lowered its 2016 global growth forecast to 3.6% (from 3.8% in July 2015) with managing director, Christine Lagarde, warning that any increase in output this year will be “disappointing and uneven”. The fund has also revised down its world trade growth projection for this year from 4.4% in July 2015 to 4.1%.
