As an integral part of its economic vision for 2030, the country is committed to building a world-class tourism infrastructure – from exclusive museums to theme parks –as well as enhancing cultural experiences to attract more tourists to the country.

Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority has been hosting various events and activities to promote Abu Dhabi as a major cultural and tourism destination.

For the United Arab Emirates, the focus on tourism-related business is part of an inclusive strategy to build a more diversified economy. As of now tourism related sectors contribute as much as 14% to the UAE’s economy (an estimated Dh194 billion in 2012).
