UAE among top 3 transport, logistics hotspots

UAE, December 23, 2018

The UAE is among the three leading countries globally where the transport and logistics companies have a favourable environment, namely due to the excellent infrastructure and links to the airports and ports, according to an analysis by Rolands Petersons, member of the board of Norman Logistics.

Petersons continued: “I presume that the UAE has been the third country for a long period, and might even take a higher place, if both leading countries in this area, China and India, would have any difficulties, namely, the economy of China slow down due to debts or India would discontinue rapid investing into the development of infrastructure.”

“Significant investments into the development of this industry explain the growth of the economy of country,” he added.

The UAE is at the 60th place among 156 countries of the world in relation to the sustainability of the country. It is significant that with certainty of 100 per cent there had been achieved and maintained one of the most essential goals and parameters of a sustainable country - the population is not exposed to the risk of poverty.

The gross national income per capita based on purchasing parity since 2009 has increased by 25 per cent, according to the data of the World Bank.

All-in-all, UAE belongs to the group of countries with a very human development index (HDI), based on data on the life expectancy of an individual, and years spent for education and income/ purchasing power ratio.

According to UNDP data, the value of HDI index in 2017 was 0.863 per cent - within the period from 1990 till 2017 its value has increased by 18.7 per cent.

Indicators of economic growth and employment (1.7 per cent of unemployment) are in line with the requirements of Eurostat's SDG index (86.4 per cent of 100 per cent) as well as the UAE are 100 per cent open to the development of different forms of partnership to achieve the global goals of growth.

It is also should be pointed out that the UAE have been placed among 25 of the best countries of the world, where this country is the first according to dynamics, uniqueness and distinction.

Issues related to environment are the most challenging ones which this country faces - climate action indicator is only 31.1 per cent, clean water and sanitation indicator- 32.2 per cent, responsible consumption and production indicator - 44.1 per cent, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
