In 1968 when Britain planned to withdraw its military troops from the gulf, Sheikh Zayed was the first statesman to call for a union. He co-operated with his neighbor then-ruler Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum. On the 27th of February 1968, the first formation of the 9 emirates were formed (Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Bahrain, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, Qatar and Umm al-Quwain). However, Bahrain and Qatar wanted to seek full independence in addition to Ras Al Khaimah.
On the 2nd of December 1971, a federation of six emirates (Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Sharjah, Umm al-Quwain) formed the United Arab Emirates [UAE]. Sheikh Zayed was elected president and Sheikh Rashid was elected vice-president. In early 1972 Ras Al Khaimah decided to join the federation, which officially took place on the 11th of February of 1972. Since the establishment of the federation in 1971, the seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Quwain, Ras Al-Khaimah and Fujairah that form the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have enjoyed an enviable degree of political stability. The UAE's political system, which is a unique combination of the traditional and the modern, has succeeded politically, enabling the country to develop a modern administrative structure while, at the same time, ensuring that the best of the traditions of the past are upheld, adapted and preserved. The economic and social condition of the country underwent dramatic changes after the inauguration of oil exports in the 1960s. The UAE of today is different from what it used to be five decades ago before the beginning of oil production.
Today it is a developed country, where cultural values and traditions make up its distinctive identity. The United Arab Emirates is a constitutional federation of seven emirates:
Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Quwain, Ras al-Khaimah and Fujairah.The federation was formally established on 2 December 1971. POLITICS GEOGRAPHY The United Arab Emirates, in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula, extends along part of the Gulf of Oman and the southern coast of the Persian Gulf. The nation is the size of Maine. Its neighbors are Saudi Arabia to the west and south, Qatar to the north, and Oman to the east. Most of the land is barren and sandy. ECONOMY The UAE has one of the most open economies in the world. This tradition of welcoming business and trade goes back to early Gulf history, when ships sailed to India and along the coast of East Africa as far south as Mozambique.The UAE continues to be a strategic hub, with business-friendly free zones and a quickly growing economy. The country has experienced significant economic growth. Average GDP growth over 2000 to 2006 in the UAE was about 8.4 percent—the highest in the Gulf Cooperation Council, which averaged 6.5 percent. EDUCATION One of the UAE’s highest priorities has always been education. As President His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founder of the UAE, noted, “The greatest use that can be made of wealth is to invest it in creating generations of educated and trained people.”The UAE has focused on educating both men and women. In 1975, the rate of adult literacy was 54 percent among men and 31 percent among women. Today, literacy rates for both genders are nearly 90 percent. Done by: THANK YOU
