Dubai is a city like a shining star on desert land, where every person wants to go once in their life. Often, Dubai is discussed not only for its stringent laws and its sky-high skyscrapers, but also for joint meetings of several collective countries.
Dubai is a city which is known all over the world due to its grandeur. Today Dubai is a main tourist destination in the whole world. Apart from this, Dubai has also become a major center of trade today.
History of Dubai: A dry land became the center of trade
Dubai today has become a developed city equipped with modern technology, but Dubai was not always like this. It was very difficult to imagine the buildings of Dubai on which the skyscrapers are standing today. Who could have imagined that this desert region can also be made such a rich economic zone, which will be recognized in the world. Dubai is one of the 7 Emirates of the United Arab Emirates. We also call UAE.
The UAE was established on 2 December 1971, which included Abu Dhabi, Azman, Dubai, Fujairah, Sharjah, Umm Al Quwain.
On 10 February 1972 Ras al-Khaimah became another state also part of this emirate.
The UAE capital is currently Abu Dhabi and Dubai is the largest state in the UAE. The history of the United Arab Emirates is very interesting. There was a time when the UAE had no source of business for itself, but the discovery of oil in 1966 opened up new avenues of trade for the UAE. With this, the region became increasingly connected to the rest of the world.
Due to a business linkage with the whole world, traders started coming here, after which the UAE government started exploring economic possibilities by making UAE a commercial area and connecting it with tourism.
After which Dubai became the most famous, which is currently a tourist destination as well as a commercial center.
If we talk about the UAE’s big city of Dubai, then the biggest interest in developing Dubai from a global perspective is the current Prime Minister of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who has spent the last 20 years on such projects to make Dubai a developed city. Due to which, Dubai became an attractive place in the world. In order to make Dubai an economic center, he adopted the policy of Income Free Tax Economy, which benefited Dubai.
