The United Arab Emirates is the most powerful country at the Middle East. Together with some other countries, it exports 65 % of world needs for oil and gas gaily, therefore, political stability of the country is vitally important for the whole Middle East; it is also the issue of concern for many other countries like the United States of America, China, Russia, and many European countries.

Political stability of The United Arab Emirates depends upon economy politics which are developed and implemented by the government. In this particular case regime of the country is not of such importance as economic prosperity – there are several countries at the Middle East which exercise various regimes and they cannot reach stability in politics as their economic performance is poor.

The tradition of production of energy is continued in the country as it contributes to development of the economy of the United Arab Emirates, it also impacts the process of acceleration of the development of additional reserves of hydrocarbon; moreover, implementation and development of alternative sources of energy are also dependent upon usage of traditional energy.
