The UAE estimates revenues will be $102 million (374.98 million dirhams) higher. The increased spending will come from the federal government’s general reserves, the council added.

The UAE in October approved a 2022 federal budget of $16 billion (58.9 billion dirhams).

The federal budget accounts for only a fraction of consolidated state spending in the UAE as individual emirates such as Abu Dhabi and Dubai also have their own budgets. It is, however, an indication of official plans for the economy.
