ABU DHABI - The official opening of the Abu Dhabi branch of France's Louvre museum has been postponed to 2017 due to pending construction work, the latest setback for the long-delayed project, three sources said on Thursday.

The Gulf branch of the famous Paris museum and two other planned museums are part of the oil-rich emirate's wider push to diversify its economy away from oil, investing billions of dollars in tourism, industry and infrastructure.

The local Louvre was originally scheduled to open in 2012 but that target was pushed back to the second half of 2016, the chairman of state-owned Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC) told Reuters last year.
