The United Arab Emirates (UAE) was adversely affected by a series of external and domestic shocks in 2009, including the global economic slowdown, the shutdown of international capital markets, and the impact of the bursting Dubai property bubble in mid-2008. Oil receipts plummeted, global trade and logistics contracted, as did property and construction activities. Executive Directors have welcomed the ongoing engagement with Dubai World’s creditors and stressed the importance of a speedy, orderly, cooperative, and predictable approach to debt restructuring.
