Podcast: How will the latest UAE reforms affect construction?
Another round of economic and legislative reforms has been approved by the UAE government, but how can construction benefit from the progressive changes?
Visa reforms and a multibillion-dollar stimulus package for Abu Dhabi have been announced, but what do these changes mean for construction in the UAE?
The latest CW podcast examines the effect of two UAE announcements: visa reforms allowing expats to tire in the country, and the Ghadan 2021, or Tomorrow 2021, economic development strategy for Abu Dhabi.
Construction Week's Oscar Rousseau and Jack Ball discuss the reforms and review how the industry has reacted to the news.
You can listen to a new podcast episode every Monday at noon.
Earlier episodes have explored why Saudi Arabia is in a race to build more hospitals, and why preserving the UAE's architectural heritage is more important than ever before. The CW team has also examined the reasons behind the continued development of oil and gas megaprojects amid energy diversification.
In addition to our weekly podcast series, a behind-the-scenes video of the recording session can be found on Construction Week's YouTube channel.
