null Decent Work and Inclusive Economic Growth

Decent Work and Inclusive Economic Growth
Goal 8
Decent Work and Inclusive Economic Growth

Goal 8 focuses on promoting comprehensive economic development as well as boosting productivity levels and creating employment and entrepreneurship opportunities. Within the Ministry of Economy’s framework, a flourishing international trade is considered a driver of comprehensive economic growth, and constitutes an important means for fulfilling Goal 8. Economic growth, catalysed by the high level of national income, influences the progress and expansion of international trade. At the same time, fluctuations in the condition of international trade have a direct impact on the country’s national income.

In line with this, the Ministry of Economy’s major objectives to achieve Goal 8 are to increase the UAE’s competitiveness in foreign trade markets and to enhance the country’s economic and investment relations with other nations to maximise its economic commercial potential.
