Specialists in overseas shipping, Interdean, has remarked on the news that the Emirates are expected to award a total of over $25 billion on improving the country’s transport systems.

According to an article published on the Gulf Business website, it is projected that the Gulf Coast Countries are to spend in excess of $86 billion during 2014, which is an increase of up to 77.8 per cent. The United Arab Emirates are one of the biggest spenders, expected to spend up to $25 billion on improving railway infrastructure, according to the NTA (National Transport Authority).

Roughly $11 billion of the budget has been allocated to Etihad Rail, the Emirates’ national rail network. A further budget of $8 billion will be spent on the metro project which will see Dubai’s network increased, and Abu Dhabi’s metro formed. Another $2 billion will be spent to develop tram networks.

Neighbouring countries are also developing their transport networks and general infrastructure by investing quite heavily. Bordering the UAE to the east, Oman has significantly increased its expenditure on infrastructure to reach $7.4 billion, whilst Saudi Arabia to the south has spent most heavily with over $29 billion dedicated to infrastructure.

Experts in global relocation for expatriates, Interdean has a keen interest in developing infrastructure projects around the world. A representative for the company responded to the news:

‘The Gulf Cooperation Council have made significant developments in recent years and the continued investment in infrastructure shows further willingness to improve connectivity both domestically and internationally. Expatriates moving to the region don’t need to feel as though they are isolated because of limited transport options, the continued development of networks means it is becoming increasingly convenient to get around, whether that is for work or for pleasure.

‘With the entire region making changes to their transport networks, it is possible to travel between the countries with greater ease than ever before. It goes without saying that the majority of expatriates are keen to explore, so ease of access can’t be underestimated when relocating to another country.’
