Dubai: Dubai’s zero-deficit budget for fiscal year 2015 will boost business activity, stimulate economic growth and encourage investment into the emirate, top officials and senior executives say. The Dh41-billion finance document, which shows first operating surplus of Dh3.6 billion in six years, is certainly a confidence booster for businesses and a real testament to Dubai’s prudent fiscal policies, they say. Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, chairman of DP World, said Dubai is again underlining the growth of its economy by adopting the government sector’s no-deficit budget for 2015. “This budget reflects the vision of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, which aims to stimulate the economy by increasing general expenditure,” he said. Bin Sulayem, who is also executive chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, said the budget is reducing the deficit by increasing revenues through the ongoing expansion of economic activity and through the resulting steady increase in governmental returns, which encourage investment and growth.
