The emirate of Dubai, a member of the United Arab Emirates federation, has the most diversified economy in the Gulf, with a strong emphasis on tourism and the leisure industry. It was one of the first tourist destinations to open its doors to international visitors in July 2020, in the midst of the covid-19 pandemic that has crippled the industry worldwide.
