Abu Dhabi: Oxford Business Group poised to launch 2013 publication

- PRESS RELEASE
The global publishing, research and consultancy firm Oxford Business Group (OBG) is preparing to launch its latest report on Abu Dhabi which features groundbreaking coverage of key investment opportunities in newly-emerging sectors of the emirate's economy.
OBG's Country Director Neslihan Aydagül said the report's new format had strengthened the Group's coverage of Abu Dhabi's latest efforts to diversify its economy, adding that the three extra chapters would provide global investors with valuable additional data.
"These are exciting times for Abu Dhabi as it steps up its bid to bring the private sector centre stage and enhance the emirate's business-friendly environment," she said. "I'm delighted that our increased coverage of Abu Dhabi has enabled us to capture its drive to boost growth in the non-oil sector and map out the new wave of opportunities that these latest economic developments should produce."
The publication's Utilities Chapter maps out Abu Dhabi's bid to increase its power supply as it looks to meet rising demand, driven in part by the emirate's economic expansion. It will also chart the latest developments in Abu Dhabi's move to partially privatise its utility services, while considering the investment opportunities that the segment offers.
OBG's 2013 report looks in detail at Abu Dhabi's plans to build up an aerospace and defence industry over the next few decades. The Aerospace Chapter will put Abu Dhabi's decision to create a local aviation hub under the microscope, exploring the key role that the ambitious venture will play in boosting capacity and bringing investment to the emirate, especially its second city of Al Ain.
With a reliance on food imports making the emirate sensitive to fluctuations in international prices, OBG's forthcoming report explores the government's plans to develop a strategic agricultural base aimed at reducing fall-out from commodity hikes. The Report Abu Dhabi 2013 will also document the emirate's drive to develop niche products, especially fruit and vegetables, and reduce water consumption long term.
Regional Editor Oliver Cornock said that OBG's decision to expand its coverage of the Utilities, Aerospace and Agriculture sectors reflected the dynamic nature of Abu Dhabi's economy. "Our research and coverage of the Aerospace sector is of particular significance, given that this is an area identified as an engine for future growth and diversification in Abu Dhabi's Economic Vision 2030," he said. "Key opportunities, especially those emerging in technology transfer and the development of related industries, will be explored in detail in our 2013 report."
Aydagül agreed that OBG's extended coverage of Abu Dhabi's economy would shine the spotlight on the emirate's new investment opportunities. "Our publications on Abu Dhabi have some of the highest circulation figures worldwide for reports analysing the emirate's economy," she said. "I'm confident that our new report will provide investors with the unrivalled data and analysis they have come to expect from our publications, alongside additional and valuable coverage of emerging opportunities in the emirate."
The Report: Abu Dhabi 2013 will assess trends and developments across the economy, including macroeconomics, infrastructure, banking and other sectoral developments. The report will be available in print or online.
