Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is the second largest Arab economy after Saudi Arabia. The UAE is also the 30th largest global economy, and has the world’s 18th highest GDP per capita (USD 44,200) rate.

A traditionally oil-rich nation, the UAE has diversified to future-proof its economy, and non-oil sectors now contribute to almost three-quarters (70%) of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP).

The UAE population is made up largely of expatriates, with around 120,000 UK residents, and it housed a further one million UK visitors during 2014. Furthermore, some 5,000 British companies operate out of the UAE, including big names like BAE Systems, BP, Rolls Royce and Shell – so if you want your business to get in on the action, here’s all you need to know about exporting to Abu Dhabi.
