Post-COVID 19 economy in UAE
The UAE government has taken the necessary steps with efficiency and quickly. It has shifted its attention towards helping the businesses mainly SME companies, to stabilize during the pandemic. Many companies informed their employees to work from home.
The SME sector in UAE contributes around 52% of GDP of the UAE, due to the COVID-19 pandemic there was a lack of finances and it was difficult to maintain a stable workforce. However the UAE government intervened and supported the thriving ecosystem which was falling down during the coronavirus.

The UAE government also reduced taxes and the cost of business setup in UAE from 25% to 98% to attract the investors. The UAE government also offered access to the virtual labor market portal to help unemployed workers provide job opportunities in the UAE.
