United Arab Emirates

With a population of approximately 10 million and a GDP of nearly 400 billion US dollars, the United Arab Emirates is one of the most important economies in the Middle East region. With a federalist structure comparable to the cantons in Switzerland, the Emirates differ in their laws and interests. The economy is still partially dependent on crude oil and therefore GDP is affected by the oil price. The UAE is generally a business-friendly environment and continually tries to make doing business easier.
