Dubai has been ruled by the Al Maktoum family since 1833. The ruler, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is also the Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and a member of the Supreme Council of the Union (SCU).Dubai developed to be a global city and business hub of the Middle East and It is also a major transport center for passengers and cargo with its first class Airports. Dubai’s oil revenue helped accelerate the early development of the city, but its reserves are limited and production levels are low: today, less than 5% of the emirate’s revenue comes from oil. The emirate’s Western-style model of business initiates its economy with the main revenues now coming from tourism, aviation, real estate, and financial services.
