Report on the United Arab Emirates The UAE is the second-largest Arab economy and the world's fifth-biggest oil exporter. From its inception UAE has worked towards building their accumulation of external financial assets, with Abu Dhabi taking the lead on managing the country’s oil wealth and Dubai’s push for economic diversification.
