UAE Central Bank : Economic growth rate in the United Arab Emirates will slip to four percent from last year's 7.4 as a result of the global financial crunch. Governor of central bank Sultan Nasser al Suwaidi said he expected growth to fall because of the global credit crisis and its impact on the domestic banking system. He said the situation “is putting pressure on everything in the external world. Therefore, that’s going to cause a slowdown in the economy (of the UAE)”
Standard Chartered report: Prediction of 2.7% economic growth rate for 2009
Oil contributed 36% to UAE economy in 2007

Nov. 23 (Bloomberg) – Amlak Finance and Tamweel, Dubai’s two-largest mortgage lenders, will be taken over by a United Arab Emirates-owned bank after concern the Gulf’s five- year real-estate boom is ending caused their shares to plummet.
Amlak and Tamweel, whose stocks each have fallen more than 80 percent this year, will “merge under” Abu Dhabi’s state- owned Real Estate Bank, the U.A.E. Ministry of Finance said late yesterday in an e-mailed statement. The transaction has the “blessing” of Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al- Maktoum.
Dubai, home to the world’s tallest building and man-made palm-tree shaped islands, is bracing for a slowdown in the property market as economic growth slumps and oil prices fall. Dubai is considered the most vulnerable place in the Persian Gulf to lower crude prices as real-estate and debt financing pose risks, Citigroup Inc said Nov. 18.
Dubai may need help from Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates to fund a surge in borrowing, according to Moody’s Investors Service.
Nakheel PJSC, the state-owned developer planning a kilometer-high tower in Dubai, said last week it will scale back some of its projects because of the global economic slowdown.
