The United Arab Emirates covers 82,880 sq.kms. This country is bordered by the Sultanate of Oman to the east as well as by Saudi Arabia to the southwest. It has nearly 10,4 million inhabitants and has a GDP of US$455.59 billion (source: FMI – DGT – BM, 2019).
The United Arab Emirates is the second largest economy among the Gulf countries behind Saudi Arabia thanks to the world’s 7th largest gas reserves, allowing the country to become the 17th biggest gas producer. The UAE economy ranks among the most diversified in the Middle East.
For a number of years now, the United Arab Emirates has been an exceptional business partner for French companies and has emerged as the country’s main outlet in the Middle East in recent years. French exports have tripled in the space of ten years and now stabilized, despite a particularly competitive market.
