United Arab Emirates listed tenth powerful

The United Arab Emirates was listed as the tenth most powerful nation in world affairs in a report published in August by US News and World Report, BAV Group, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. UAE is the only new addition to this list bringing it to par with more developed nations.


The distinctive participation of the United Nations at the famed Expo 2020 was another instance of the recognition of the UAE on international platforms. The Global Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2022 also crowned UAE as the leading Arab country in closing the gender gap, with a subindex score of 0.402. 


The UAE held an important role in establishing peace talks between the Taliban and the United States following the refusal of the Taliban in extraditing militant Islamist Osama bin Laden, who was accused of organizing September 11, 2001, attacks


UAE’s strong condemnation of terrorism is apparent in their multiple counter-terrorism partnerships with other countries, including the air campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (also known as ISIS) and the coalition with Saudi Arabia in suppressing the notorious Houthi rebels in Yemen.


In addition, UAE has emerged as an important supplier of oil due to the constant reassurance of stable and steady supply for the ever-increasing global energy demand.


These new advances in international recognition led to the conduct of a survey by Ipsos, which stated that more than 90% of UAE residents think that the UAE will positively influence world affairs in the next decade. Higher than the developed nations with larger economies, including, Australia, Sweden, Japan, South Korea, Turkey, and Italy.
