The Abu Dhabi government's decision to redevelop Al Bateen as a gateway for private and executive flights is an important feature of its ambitious 2030 masterplan to diversify the economy of the emirate. No less than $500 billion is being invested over a 20-year period to establish Abu Dhabi as a global business and cultural hub in the United Arab Emirates.

Aviation, aerospace and defense activities is one of 12 economic sectors the government is focusing on to achieve its 2030 growth objectives. The other sectors being targeted are energy, petrochemicals, metals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and life sciences, tourism, healthcare, transportation, trade and logistics, education, media, financial services and telecommunications.
