The emirate offers this to meet the needs of and to support various economic sectors.”

The launch of GIAS comes at a time when the volume of investment to modernize global aviation is projected to reach $1.8tn by 2030. Growing investments in different continents and regions are strong indicators that the investment trend is leaning toward more promising and bigger opportunities especially in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Among the major cities investing for their aviation modernization and development are Jeddah ($7.2bn), Kuwait ($4.3bn), Argentina ($803m), South Africa ($632m), Egypt ($436m), Kenya ($306m), Nigeria ($300m), Uganda ($200m), and Seychelles ($150m).
