In 2020, there were 455 FDI projects, above the 441 annual average over the past five years, the media office said.

“Dubai’s sustained FDI flows and its leading position in regional and global rankings as a major FDI destination in 2020, reflect the continued attractiveness of Dubai’s investment environment and the confidence of the investor community in Dubai’s future economic potential,” said Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum.

FDI fell 74 percent in the first half of 2020 to 12 billion dirhams.
