Though the country has previously lagged behind many of its neighbors, the United Arab Emirates has become a force to be reckoned with in the region. When looking at the country's demographics, however, the picture becomes clearer; with the population is mainly foreign workers or expatriates, with a significant British presence. Since the discovery of oil in the UAE in 1950, the petroleum industry has been the major hub of economic growth for the entire country. Abu Dhabi became the first region in the United Arab Emirates to export the liquid gold, moving the country from a dying agricultural economy to a booming industrial nation.
Careful planning over the years has seen the oil business successfully joined with a conscious campaign to attract business, construction, and tourism to the nation, creating a more stable and diversified economic base.
