Like other economies UAE was hit by global financial crises in 2009 resulted in tight international credit and deflated asset prices. The authorities tries to overcome the crises by increasing spending and liquidity in the banking sector. Dubai was hit hardest during global crises, which led to depressed real estate prices. In December 2009 Dubai was injected with $ 10 billion loan by Abu Dhabi and emirates. The UAE’s future plan focuses on diversification and creating opportunities for nationals through quality education and private sector employment.
Introduction to French Economy
The economy of France is diversified. Most of large firms have been privatized completely or partially by the government including Air France, France telecom, Renault and Thales. However the government has control over some sectors like Power public transport and defense industries. The tourism industry of France is third largest in the world with at least 81 million foreign tourist per year. The real GDP of France stood still in 2012 and 2013. Unemployment rate has increased to 10.2% in 2013 from 7.8% in 2008; however youth unemployment has diminished from 25.4% in 2012 to 22.8% in 2013. The budget deficit increased to 7.5% of GDP in 2009 from 3.3% of GDP in 2008 before improving to 4.1% of GDP in 2013. Economy witnessed the 3.3% decline in 2007 to 7.5% in two years after that. French President Hollande has given the model for the employee support. Despite of the difficult conditions in France, it is still an attractive place for the investors because of liquidity of French bonds.
