This 2002 Article IV Consultation highlights that despite lower oil revenue, the United Arab Emirates economy performed relatively well in 2001. The external current account surplus remained large, even though average oil prices declined by 12.6 percent to US$23.78 per barrel, leading to a loss in oil export receipts equivalent to 5 percent of GDP. Real GDP grew by about 4 percent, as a number of projects were launched in construction, electricity and water, and downstream oil sectors.
