This thesis seeks to analyse the role of 'offsets' in the UAE economy, particularly as an FDI mechanism, and to evaluate the extent to which the offset programme has delivered a developmental impact in terms of diversification, technology transfer, and job creation for nationals. Offsets are a common countertrade practice in defence procurement. The UAE has employed 'indirect offsets' as a strategy for broad-based economic development since 1992. As its offset requirement takes the form of joint venture investment with local partners, offsets resemble an FDI vehicle.
