UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is undeniably running to be one of the world's fastest growing economies and countries. Some time ago it was nothing more than a budding country with some fresh-faced sheikhdoms at its front for support, but due to a sudden boost and good management, the magnificent Persian Gulf nation ran to become one of the highest Human Development Indexes, much thanks to quickly growing infrastructures in the area which in turn made UEA all the more developed in a short span of time. The UAE makes no joke in flaunting off its gorgeous highrise infrastructures and skyscrapers, a technological oasis.
