With a total population of just 9 million, UAE is a high income and one of the richest nations in the world. UAE is actively seeking ways to diversify its economy in the long term, as it is heavily reliant on oil exports as a primary revenue stream at the moment. The country is investing into sustainable energy, education and science.

UAE imposes a 5% tax on imported goods, in accordance with the Unified Customs Law (ULC). United Arab Emirates main imports are pearls and other precious metals and stones, machinery, sound recorders and transport vehicles. UAEs import partners are China, India and the United States.
