The History of Dubai can be traced way back 3000 years. In 1833, Al Maktoum dynasty of the Bani Yas tribe captured Dubai and then Dubai became an independent emirate. In December 1971 formed the United Arab Emirates after Britain left the Persian Gulf, in 1973 the emirates got their own currency.
The major turning point of Dubai history is when they found oil in 1966, Dubai then created their own currency. Once the first shipment was made that was then the future of Dubai was secured.
The formation of UAE happened after the Britain left the Persian Gulf in 1973, causing Dubai anf Abu Dhabi and 5 other emirates to unite, but Dubai and Abu Dhabi secured negotiations that they could control the country effectively and that enabled the great expansion that is seen today in Dubai. This means that only Abu Dhabi and Dubai only have the rights to have vote power of nation importance where other emirates have vote rights for other matters.
From the death of Sheikh Rashid Al-Maktoum made the accession of Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum to the throne. In 1990 there was a war between which is the Persian Gulf War which made Dubai as part of UAE provided soldiers as well to aid the coalition as well as the unsettled economy, but during the 1990s many foreign trading communities and moved their business to Dubai, and from there on the Dubai has become a business center from all over the world. There was then the global increase of oil and the success of Jenel Ali free zone.
