Abu Dhabi, capital of the UAE, is the seat of government and largest state of the United Arab Emirates. A progressive Arabian city of 1.6 million people, its sandy coastline is dotted with over 200 islands, gently lapped by the azure waters of the south-eastern Arabian Gulf. With one of the world's largest oil reserves, resulting revenue has been multiplied with international investment making Abu Dhabi one of the world's richest cities.
The Emirate holds 10% of the world’s oil and 5% of its natural gas, providing a large and consistent source of national wealth. Through the Plan Abu Dhabi 2030, the Abu Dhabi government is diversifying its economy away from oil and gas, ensuring the long-term economic sustainability of the Emirate, and providing long term economic growth for Emiratis and professionals from around the world.
