While being a comprehensive plan to boost industrial development, competitiveness and investment, the Abu Dhabi Industrial Strategy (ADIS) will also promote Emiratisation:

ADDED offers a range of incentives to businesses that hire Emiratis, including:

  • The Land Incentives Programme: offers attractive land lease rates and other incentives to businesses operating in key sectors, encouraging them to expand their operations and create employment opportunities for Emiratis
