Etihad Rail’s services will contribute significantly to a number of key development strategies within the UAE. As the railway line connects more areas within the UAE and GCC, various industries and communities will expand as a result. The region will experience more economic, social and cultural growth in the form of new job opportunities, industrial diversification and much more.
These economic benefits will support businesses, commuters and other travellers across the region. The project will also contribute to tourism and the wider UAE economy.Analysis show that the economic benefits that Etihad Rail will bring are shared across all seven Emirates. It will support exports as well as increased inward investment. It will also provide employment opportunities and increase incomes of business and property owners, as well as their employees.
The enhanced connectivity that Etihad Rail will deliver will effectively bring businesses closer together, facilitating more efficient trade, extending geographic markets and making a greater labour force available.
