Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – an Arabian peninsula upon which Dubai also sits – and is the second largest Arab economy after Saudi Arabia and 30th largest globally with the 18th highest GDP per capita (USD 44,200) rate.
Although in the middle of a very oil-rich part of the world, the UAE has diversified its economy away from oil, with almost three-quarters of its GDP now coming from non-oil sectors.
The UAE is the UK’s 12 largest global export market, and its largest civil export market in the Middle East, and there are over 5,000 British companies operating out the, including big names such as BAE Systems, BP, HSBC, Rolls Royce, and Shell, while 779 commercial agencies and 4,762 British brands have invested in the UAE.
The majority of the UAE population is made up of expatriates, with around 120,000 UK residents.
