Dubai [UAE], February 12 (ANI/WAM): Bernard Mensah, President of International for Bank of America, has commended the flexibility, dynamism, and strong growth of the UAE economy despite global challenges.

The UAE's economic drive has been remarkable, and "I always encourage and admire it, especially in terms of its strong growth and dynamism" he told the Emirates News Agency (WAM) on the sidelines of the ongoing World Governments (WGS) Summit 2024.

Despite worries about the global economic prospects due to geopolitical tensions, Mensah maintains a positive outlook for growth in 2024, which goes in line with the recent upward adjustment of the global economic growth projection by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Last month, the IMF hiked its forecast for global economic growth to 3.1 percent in 2024, up two-tenths of a percentage point from its October forecast, and expected unchanged growth of 3.2% in 2025

"I see significant interest in investing and engaging in new technology on a global scale," Mensah said.
