Business executives in the UAE plan to start traveling more frequently over the next 12 months, according to the Travel Tracker survey conducted by YouGovSiraj in January this year. The survey found that 46 percent of the respondents expected their business travel to increase in the next year, while 16 percent expect to travel less during the period.
“It has been a lean year for executives used to travelling for business around the world on company expenses, but business travel looks set to take off again,” Jane Wilson, director of Travel and Tourism Research, said in a release. “As people are feeling more positive about the economy and are increasingly focused on growth, they are now planning to travel on business more,” she said.
