The United Arab Emirates consists of seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Fujairah. Four-fifths of the UAE is desert but has contrasting landscapes—from the towering red dunes of the Liwa to the rich palm-filled Oasis of Al Ain, from the precipitous Hajjar Mountains to the more fertile stretches of its coastal plains.
Though small in size (similar to the size of Scotland), 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 small, underdeveloped states into a federation—the only one in the Arab world. With his visionary leadership, oil wealth was used to develop the UAE into one of the world’s most open and successful economies.
Dubai is the second largest Emirate by population and size. Dubai borders the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Dubai has been an economically dynamic city since long before the establishment of the UAE in 1971. In the years since, it has demonstrated a track record of remarkable economic growth and political stability. Over this period, Dubai has moved from being a small, local trading city into a global hub of commerce.
