The prosperity of the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) is largely based on the country’s vast oil and gas reserves. In the last 30 years the UAE has undergone an extreme transformation from an impoverished small desert region to a modern state with a high standard of living.
Despite the global economic crisis, the UAE has been successful in economic diversification thereby not only relying on its oil revenue. The UAE has significantly increased spending on job creation and infrastructure expansion which has vastly improved the private sector. The Burj Khalifa, in Dubai, was completed in January 2010 and became the world’s tallest building at 2,716 feet (828 meters) and 160 stories.
