The United Arab Emirates scored 66.5 out of 100 in the “Freedom and Prosperity Index”, ranking first in the Arab world and 34th globally.
In the report attached to the results of the index, the Center for Freedom and Prosperity stated that the UAE leads among Arab countries towards prosperity as well as economic freedom.
The report added that the UAE is classified in terms of freedom within the “largely free” category, the highest rating among Arab countries, noting that this classification also led the UAE to Arab superiority in economic performance, which in turn led to its superiority in wealth and prosperity.
