The United Arab Emirates’ federal government aims to increase spending by AED1.23 billion ($334.9 million) in the 2022 budget, the Federal National Council said on Twitter on Tuesday.
The UAE estimates revenues will be AED374.98 million ($102.1 million) 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 AED58.9 billion ($16.04 million).
The federal budget accounts for only a fraction of the 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.
