     These diversification efforts aim to reduce dependence on oil revenues and create a more sustainable and resilient economy.
  4. Impact of Debt Crisis: Dubai faced a debt crisis following the 2008 global financial crisis, which weakened its political economy and shifted the balance of power towards Abu Dhabi

     However, Dubai has taken steps to address its debt risk and ensure sustainable growth, such as setting up a Debt Management Office and repaying or restructuring some outstanding debt
