History
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of seven states that has grown from a quiet backwater to one of the Middle East's most important economic centres. The UAE’s rich history is rooted in trade and tied to Islam, which came to the region in AD 630. Its location between Europe and the Far East attracted merchants from India and China and was prized by Europeans, in particular the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British.
While Europeans sought control of the coasts, inland, the ancestors of the Bedouin made the sandy deserts of Abu Dhabi and Dubai their home. The town of Abu Dhabi became an important center.
In the 19th century, the British signed a series of agreements with the individual emirates that resulted in the area becoming known as “The Trucial States.” They agreed not to dispose of any territory except to the United Kingdom and not to enter into relationships with any foreign government other than the United Kingdom without its consent. In return, the British promised to protect the coast from all aggression by sea and to help in case of land attack.
The pearling industry thrived in 19th and early 20th centuries, providing income and employment to the people of the Gulf. Many inhabitants were semi-nomadic, pearling in the summer and tending date gardens in the winter. But the economic depression in the late 1920s and early 1930s, coupled with the Japanese invention of the cultured pearl, irreparably damaged the industry.
New Beginnings
In the early 1930s the first oil company teams conducted geological surveys. In 1962, the first cargo of crude was exported from Abu Dhabi. With oil revenues growing year by year, HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was chosen as Ruler of Abu Dhabi in 1966. He undertook a massive program of construction of schools, housing, hospitals and roads.
One of Sheikh Zayed’s early steps was to increase…...

...------------------------------------------------- Water in the UAE ------------------------------------------------- Impact Achievements and Ways Forward Introduction Water is the resource that sustains all life on earth and is a key element of sustainable development. It is essential if human beings are to enjoy healthy and safe lives or realize social and economic development. Ecosystems are also inextricably linked with water. Water sustains humans’ health, food production, and economic development. But only 3 percent of Earth’s water is salt-free, or fresh water. Moreover, nearly 70 percent of fresh water is locked in glaciers and icebergs, and is not available for human use. The fresh water that is available comes from rain or from rivers, lakes, springs, and some groundwater reserves, such as aquifers. With the increasing demand on water for all aspects of sustainable development, water is becoming very scares all around the world! * Around 700 million people in 43 countries suffer today from water scarcity. * By 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two-thirds of the world's population could be living under water stressed conditions. * With the existing climate change scenario, almost half the world's population will be living in areas of high water stress by 2030, including between 75 million and 250 million people in Africa.

Final Remarks Investing in People Better by a Margin Starting the Process pg 48 pg 64 pg 72 3 Aleron Partners FZ-LLC 2012 © 4 Aleron Partners FZ-LLC 2012 © Foreword by Matthew Lewis Much has been written about the Macro and Socioeconomic impact on the UAE and its economy since the global financial crisis – the oil price, the Arab Spring and on-going Middle East instability are all valid factors in this regard. What we have not seen until now is the resultant effect and impact on the often overlooked but most important assets of any business – its people and their productivity. Our research seeks to fill that omission. The period from 2008 to 2012 has seen a cataclysmic shift in the fundamental areas of demand, quality and flexibility of the talent pool in the UAE. High costs of expatriation and the regional pressure of localisation have put more focus on the productivity of people working within shrinking organisations. Many UAE employees, not having previously worked in a constant change environment and under unfamiliar circumstances, are struggling to perform with fewer resources, less direction, less personal development and / or rewards.

...HISTORICAL BACKGROUND Early Years: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) was formed from the group of tribally organized Arabian Peninsula sheikhdoms along the southern coast of the Persian Gulf and the northwestern coast of the Gulf of Oman. This area was converted to Islam in the seventh century and for Library of Congress – Federal Research Division Country Profile: United Arab Emirates, July 2007 centuries afterward was embroiled in dynastic disputes. Most UAE nationals are descended from two tribal groupings, the Qawasim and the Bani Yas, which emerged as leading powers in the eighteenth century. The Qawasim, mainly land and sea traders, dominated what are today the emirates of Ras al Khaymah and Sharjah. The Bani Yas, who were agricultural and pastoral, lived in what are today the emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. From the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, the area became known as the Pirate Coast, as both European and Arab pirates attacked foreign ships. The British mounted expeditions against the pirates during this period, culminating in an 1818 campaign against the pirate headquarters of Ras al Khaymah and other harbors along the coast. This action ostensibly was taken to safeguard British maritime routes, particularly those of the British East India Company, but some historians have noted that the war was in fact motivated by the British desire to establish supremacy in the region against the claims of other European powers.

Nuclear Power in the Uae

...referred to as the UAE or the Emirates) is a relatively young country that has established a powerful world economy in a short period of time. After breaking ties from the United Kingdom just over four decades ago, the UAE has quickly developed one of the most appealing economies for foreign investment in Western Asia. The Emirates’ largest cities, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, are significant business gateways between the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Leveraging its prime geographical location and plentiful oil and natural gas reserves, the UAE has endeavored to develop its economy to the point that “today, [the Emirates] feels proud of [its] world-class and highly-ranked sea and air ports, which have strongly positioned the UAE as a main hub for trade and travel worldwide,” according to UAE Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed. This improvement-centric mindset coupled with strategic reinvestment in infrastructure sets the United Arab Emirates on a path towards long-term global impact in many business indices.

Uae: Economics

...U.A.E: The Success Story The emergence of the UAE as an economic powerhouse is an example of a country going through a tremendous transformation. From a tiny country with a nomadic society to building the most modern city in the world. The city being Dubai of course. Dubai is the crown jewel of the UAE and the arab world as a whole. Now one of the most sought-after tourist destinations and business hubs for citizens of the world, Dubai’s success story has made many other Middle Eastern nations take notice. In a survey done by the Arab Youth organization, young arabs chose the UAE as “the country they would most like to move to… and the country they would most like their country to emulate” (Badam). The UAE was ahead of 20 other countries, including the United States, Germany and Britain, as young people’s top country to live in. What led to the UAE’s astronomical rise? What policies led to the resources from oil revenues being spent in the most efficient fashion in comparison to other nations? These are the questions I will tackle in this paper. The UAE was established in 1971 when the rulers of the seven independent emirates agreed to instill a unifying constitution. The ruler of Abu Dhabi at the time , Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, was chosen to lead the country. Since then, the ruler of Abu Dhabi is President of the United Arab Emirates, the head of state, and the ruler of Dubai is the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, the head of government.

Egovernment Strategies the Case of Uae

...eGovernment Strategies The Case of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) This article provides an overview of eGovernment and its role in revolutionising existing governmental systems. It argues that in order for eGovernment initiatives to truly succeed, we need to develop public trust and confidence to promote diffusion and participation. The article relates this to the recently announced UAE eGovernment Strategic Framework 2011-2013. The framework attempts to promote the electronic transformation of all government services within a period of three years. An important component of the strategic framework in question is the use of the existing national identity management infrastructure and the development of a government-owned federated identity management system to support Governmentto-Citizen (G2C) eGovernment transactions and promote trust and confidence on the Internet. Dr. Ali M. Al-Khouri United Arab Emirates Keywords eGovernment, identity management, federated identity, identity card. Government-owned identity management systems that provide secure, unique and tamper-proof digital identities should become a primary component of national eGovernment strategies. Such federated identity systems can gain higher levels of trust, confidence and encourage public participation and has the potential to enable new levels of collaboration between different government agencies.

Uae Economy

...Emirates Uae Economics Essay In less than four decades, the United Arab Emirates, a relatively young country, changed from a huge desert to a country that is known today as one of the best in the world to live in. The UAE is a federation of seven monarchies: Abu-Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras AL- Khaimah and Umm al-Qaiwain. The country is located in the Middle East and is part of the Gulf Cooperation Council which is an economic alliance of six countries bordering the Arab Gulf. Its law is based on Sharia but the UAE is one of the most liberalized countries in the GCC: others beliefs and religions are tolerated. The economy is heavily depending on oil wealth despite the government's efforts to diversify the sources of income. The population is mostly comprised of expatriates (88.52% of the total population in 2010 as per the National Bureau of Statistics estimates). Abu Dhabi, which is known as the driving force in economic, political and decision making process, account for about 90 percent of the oil production, and oil contribute 56% of the entire GDP of the emirates. Dubai is actually the main responsible for the remarkable growth witnessed in the majority of the UAE non-oil sector, Dubai serves as the financial hub in the whole middle east, with commerce, transportation, services and tourism as the driven force of the economy. Its GDP has experienced an exponential growth of around 245% from 2000 to 2011. In the UNDP's Human Development Report 2011, the......
