Economic Prosperity

Developing the public transportation system creates in-country value to the Emirate of Dubai and the UAE. This is largely achievable by building and expanding the transportation infrastructure, creating unique public-private partnerships and agreements, investing in locally based suppliers and developing the UAE’s national talents. All these contribute to the UAE’s vision of diversifying the economy and creating a strong knowledge-based economy. RTA’s definition of economic development and growth are those contributions that meet the needs and requirements of the community through local growth and sustainable economic development. RTA aims to continue developing and expanding the transportation infrastructure and services to increase reach, accessibility and innovative services to all stakeholders. The ‘Economic Prosperity’ pillar focuses our objectives and efforts towards following three key areas:

  1. Local economic Impact
  2. Sustainable Procurement and Asset Management
