Economic success drives the viability of any city. ANAM enjoys a strategic location and abundant resources that can facilitate a lively economic environment. In order to provide economic and social well being for its residents, ANAM’s economic development plan aims to create an open, diverse, vibrant and creative economy that builds on local resources and human capital.

Therefore, ANAM city will serve as a pro-business space to support a culture of entrepreneurship across a spectrum from micro-enterprise to international commerce and medium and large-scale industry. Agriculture is of paramount significance within this economic structure and associated urban morphology. Promotion of economic activity will be supported with intergenerational access to and transfer of assets. Strategies include

  • agriculture as a major economy,
  • a robust industry through innovative technology and financial incentives,
  • an business-friendly environment supported by efficient city systems and infrastructures
  • a local currency designed to strengthen the local economy, instill community pride, raise the quality of life and promote collective progress by enabling an alternative form of exchange across all income levels
