Umm Ul Quwain

The Emirate of Umm Al Quwain, which has a coastline stretching to 24 kilometers, is located on the Arabian Gulf coast of the UAE, between Sharjah to the west, and Ras Al Khaimah to the east.

The total area of the emirate is about 777 square kilometers, equivalent to one per cent of the country's total area, excluding the island. It is ruled by His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Ahmed Al Mu'alla who succeeded his father in 1981.

The city of Umm Al Quwain, capital of the Emirate, houses the Ruler's office, administrative and commercial centres, the main port and a Mariculture Research Centre where prawns and fish are reared on an experimental basis. The city also has the preserved remains of an old fort, its main gate flanked by defensive cannons.

Located 50 kilometres south of Umm Al Quwain is Falaj Al Mulla, the agricultural area of the Emirate. Sinayah Island, lying one kilometer away from the town of Umm Al Quwain, is a natural reserve for a large number of species of birds, deers and Al Qaram trees.

The traditional occupations of this emirate have been fishing and date cultivation. Umm Al Quwain's attraction lies in its long clean beaches, an enclosed lagoon and public horse riding stables.

The Ahmed Bin Rashid Port and Free Zone located in Umm Al Quwain offers great incentives to investors.

Umm Al Quwain also houses a multi-million dirham aqua park, Dreamland, which has boosted its prominence in the UAE.

Umm Al Qaiwain is ruled by the Al Mualla family. It is the second smallest emirate, with a total area of around 770 square kilometres. Positioned between the emirates of Sharjah and Ajman to the south and Ras Al Khaimah to the north, Umm Al Qaiwain has the smallest population. Fishing is the local population's primary means of income.

Date farming also plays a significant role in the economy. After the union of the emirates in 1971 Umm Al Qaiwain developed into a modern state, and continues to progress under its present ruler, Sheikh Rashid bin Ahmed Al Mualla.
