The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of the 7 emirates :
Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras al-Khaimah, Ajman, Fujairah, and Umm al-Quwain.
The UAE has the most diverse economy in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) A nation that once depended on the export of its large oil reserves to sustain its economy now derives only a small part of its GDP from this sector, turning instead to trade and tourism for growth.
The UAE is one of the world’s largest business hubs, with Dubai, the country’s most populous city, serving as a premier international hub and a popular Travel destination for Businesspeople, Tourists, and Foreign Investors.
All of this is a result of the UAE government’s market-friendly economic policies over the past three decades, which have supported foreign investment, sustainable development, innovation, and research.
