Topic: Why is the UAE a Great Nation? Greatness is not something that can be gained easily, especially for countries. The greatness of a country is determined by its history and origin. The UAE’s history makes it a good example of a great country. Through the UAE’s history, there is a series of challenges and obstacles that have Faced it and a lot of things that was powerful enough to prevent it from union and joining. But despite all these circumstances, the UAE have achieved the federation and became a strong independent country. Also, the UAE had built itself from the zero point till it became one of the most developed countries that people come to from all over the world, and all of this in a short, brief time. The UAE’s history was a challenge-filled history. Long ago, the UAE was colonized by the Portuguese, which limited its ability to develop and many spirits were gone trying to defend themselves and their country from this colonialism, not a long time after the Portuguese colonialism was gone that the British colonialism were taking part. All these things prevented the UAE from doing a federation and became an independent country, also it made a lot of harm and damage to it. But despite all these things, the idea of federation was stuck in the UAE’s leaders’ minds. The life of our ancient grandparents weren’t easy, under all these difficult circumstances there were no jobs to work in except for a few crafts like pearl diving, sewing, and making simple boats for fishing. But they were always in the backs of their leaders and always supported them in all decisions. Every year we celebrate the year of federation of the UAE, which was not a long time ago. Although the UAE is considered one of the most new or modern countries, it has built itself from the zero point till it became one of the most advanced and developed countries around the world, and tourists visit it from all around the world. And all that in a very short time.
