United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates consists of seven Emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Umm al-Qaiwain, Fujairah, Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah. Four-fifths of the UAE is desert but has contrasting landscapes—from the precipitous Hajar Mountains to the more fertile stretches of its coastal plains.

 

Though small in size , the UAE has become an important player in regional and international affairs. In 1971, the late President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan unified the states into a federation. With his visionary leadership, oil wealth was used to develop the UAE into one of the world’s most open and successful economies.
