United Arab Emirates: Growth of a Nation

United Arab Emirates: Growth of a Nation takes a detailed look at the current state of the UAE as a nation and federation. The publication traces the history of the UAE, its crucial geopolitical location, its position in international organisations – including the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Arab League, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the United Nations – and the federation's role and significance in regional, Islamic and global economies.

United Arab Emirates: Growth of a Nation also analyses the outlook for the UAE economy, identifying its current strengths and future challenges, and looking at intra-federal cooperation; legal and regulatory developments; diversification from oil and gas policies; and the development of the banking and finance sector. The publication examines foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows into the UAE economy, particularly those from other GCC countries, and considers future FDI opportunities for investment in the UAE.

The political, financial, economic, cultural and development implications of Dubai winning the right to stage the World Expo 2020, under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, are also highlighted, along with UAE Vision 2021, the core component of which is the UAE National Games.

United Arab Emirates: Growth of a Nation is published by GT Media ME Ltd, in conjunction with Newsdesk Media.
