The UAE has approved a zero-deficit federal budget of AED 61.35 billion for the fiscal year 2020. This amount reflects an increase of nearly 2% compared to the AED 60.29 billion budget of the fiscal year 2019, thus making the 2020 federal budget the largest since the establishment of the country. One third of the budget is dedicated to social development, one third to government affairs, and the remainder allocated to infrastructure, economic resources and social benefits.
