Crane Associates provided the economic analysis to support this regional framework plan. The Emirate of Fujairah is strategically located on the Sea of Oman. The Fujairah Seaport is quickly emerging as a vital link in the UAE economy. A new oil and gas pipeline and national railroad, extending the length of the country, will terminate in Fujairah. It is also home to one of the largest oil storage facilities in the UAE, the country’s strategic grain storage, renowned mineral resources, and a fledging tourist economy. The population will double in about 15 years. Crane Associates, as a subcontractor to the prime, provided all economic analysis and advice in key elements of the Framework Plan. This included providing demand forecasts for jobs in all economic sectors, demand for public services and housing, and demand for commercial real estate. We are also providing analysis and recommendation on the governance and institutional capacity of the Fujairah government to implement this plan.
