—Over the last 30 years, the UAE has transformed into one of the most competitive countries in the world. As the UAE non-oil economy continues to develop, it is becoming an increasingly intensive consumer of energy. All of that is creating motivation for more economic diversification. In this paper I discuss the export policies of the UAE focusing on current trends of the UAE’s exports, and I predict future opportunities which may expand total exports of the country.
—Economic diversification, exports, trade, UAE.
