View in Online Reader

The government has overseen Al Ain’s development in line with the policies laid out by the current ruling family of Abu Dhabi, which is committed to maintaining the traditional character of their ancestral home. Al Ain’s heritage and the area’s many natural attractions have made it a popular tourist destination for Emiratis and foreigners alike. Under Plan Al Ain, Jebel Hafeet and the surrounding Hajjar Mountains will be given national park status, with the goal of protecting the area from development and making it more accessible to visitors. The region is expected to attract considerable and sustained investment from both domestic and foreign investors, and a wide variety of industries will likely benefit from the anticipated increase in economic activity.
