Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Abu Dhabi’s economy climbed 6.8 percent to 606.6 billion dirhams ($165 billion) in 2011, led by the emirate’s non-oil activities.

The emirate’s real gross domestic product climbed from 567.8 billion dirhams in 2010, according to preliminary data released by the Statistics Centre in Abu Dhabi. Non-oil industries accounted for about 48 percent of the emirate’s economy in 2011, rising 4.1 percent to 288.8 billion dirhams, the data show. Inflation in 2011 was 1.9 percent.

The transport, storage and communications industry grew 12.5 percent in the period, followed by an 11.4 percent rise in restaurants and hotels, 10.9 percent increase in real estate, and 9.8 percent rise in manufacturing, the agency said in the report.
