    The government of the UAE has tried, and continued to succeed, to build up the nation into a global competitor.  This is largely due to the vision that His Highness Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.  He saw the unification of the emirates into one nation.  He ruled Abu Dhabi and presided over the UAE until the year of his death.  Without him, the UAE would be nowhere near what it is today.

    To many people who have lived in the UAE since the mid-twentieth century, they could easily tell you that these developments seem to be a miracle.  All of the skyscrapers dotting the sky in the varying emirates were not there before.  A literal oasis has grown out of the sand.

    Before the boom, life in the UAE was very simple.  There were no multinational corporations, there weren’t any busy highways, and there certainly were not as many people.

    The capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi, is no exception to the changes that the nation has faced.  It is renowned for its infrastructure, skyscrapers, landscape and overall ambiance.  All of these changes have occurred in several stages.

    Under Shaikh Zayed, new institutions were created, helping the nation further itself on the international stage.  He created a hospitable environment where the private sector could enter and flourish. 

    From the 1980s to 1990s, the UAE’s population increased exponentially.  The private sector also attracted many expatriates from around the world, making the UAE a diverse workplace. 

    Today, the UAE is one of the fasted growing nations in the world.  It has countless projects and developments occurring simultaneously.  It is becoming a global competitor in a variety of industries: from oil to telecommunications to construction.  Not only is it succeeding in those industries, but also in the tourist industry.  Millions of people visit the UAE each year, eager to see this miracle nation that seems to be a depiction of a not-too-distant future.
