According to the data and overall analysis from several sources like the World Economic Fund, the World Risk Report, NHS Fit for Travel website, and many more, UAE is considered one of the safest countries in the world. It beats several holiday destinations like France, Switzerland, and even Singapore which held the top spot for being the safest countries in the world in previous years.
So this 47th National day, we look at all the factors that make UAE one of the safest countries to live in.
Safety and Security
Thanks to strict measures and high security, UAE is considered to have some of the lowest crime rates in the world, and also enjoys the status as one of the safest Arab countries. In a recent survey, almost 98.6% of residents stated that they feel secure and safe in the UAE. Numbeo.com, a crowd sourced data website, rated Abu Dhabi as the 2nd safest city in the world in 2018, and Dubai follows closely in that list.
It’s no surprise that UAE is known to have one of the most stabilized economies in the Gulf region, with several international enterprises and multinational companies setting up their head offices in the country. As of 2016, around 132,000 businesses were established. Furthermore, UAE is making efforts in creating initiatives and areas that are focused in providing an eco-system for new businesses and start-up companies.
Diversity and Heritage
UAE has a high tolerance for all races, religions, and other minorities due to the 80% expat population. Furthermore, the rich heritage of the UAE promotes peace and openness with all cultures, nationalities, and demographics. In fact, UAE even established a National Program for Happiness & Well-being or a Ministry of Happiness, which inspires residents to create a harmonious community.
This 47th National Day, we look forward to what more the UAE can offer its residents, visitors, and investors. With incredible projects, ambitious developments, amazing initiatives, and of course the ultimate countdown to the much anticipated World Expo 2020, it is safe to say that the future of UAE is going to be something that will be talked about for decades.
We would like to wish everyone and their families a very happy National Day.
