In 1972 the six trucial states of the Persian Gulf – Abu Dhabi, 'Ajman, Al Fujayrah, Ash Shariqah, Dubayy, Umm al Qaywayn, and Ra's al Khaymah – merged to form the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The discovery of oil in the region in the 1950s has profoundly changed these historically fishing, pearling, and nomadic farming states.
Through its market-oriented economy, openness to international business, and focus on modernization and technology, the UAE has become one of the most prosperous countries in the Middle East and one of the most competitive in the world today.
