UAE: Federal support for northern emirates
Northern emirates infrastructure: Federal Vice President, prime minister and Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum (MBR) unveiled infrastructure spending worth nearly Dh18bn ($4.9bn) during a series of visits to the northern emirates in late February/early March.

In late February, MBR visited Ajman and Umm Al-Quwain to announce Dh11bn on road and infrastructure projects.
