Learning Expeditions

About the United Arab Emirates

Situated  at  a  crossroads  between  the  West  and  the  East,  the  United  Arab  Emirates  (UAE)  offers the image of a strong and prosperous economy and stable politics in a turbulent regional context.  
The second largest economy in the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (CCEAG) behind Saudi Arabia, with a GDP/capita of $71,548 in 2019, the GDP of the United Arab Emirates is largely dominated by the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (+60%), which ensures more than 90% of the production of hydrocarbons and manages the bulk of the savings accumulated in sovereign funds (ADIA, Mubadala).
