Abu Dhabi, the largest economy in the United Arab Emirates, is expected to post gross domestic product growth of 3.9 percent this year, the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development said in a statement on Monday.

The department also forecast that growth would accelerate to a 5.7 percent annual rate in 2013-2016. It predicted growth in non-oil GDP of 5.5 percent this year, accelerating to an average of 6.5 percent in the 2013-2016 period.
