Ministerial Council passes UAE domain in Arabic
posted on 02/03/2009
The Ministerial Council for Services passed yesterday a proposal put forward by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) on the UAE domain on the internet in Arabic (Emarat). The proposal is part of the TRA's strategy to chalk out a national plan for running and managing internet in Arabic language. It falls in line with the new approach of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to create equivalent domains in languages other than English.
The UAE domain in English is ae.

The UAE domain in Arabic will contribute to increasing the number of surfers to Arabic sites and further promote and strengthen the UAE's identity. Presided over by H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Presidential Affairs, the Council also discussed two studies by the Marriage Fund on the contribution of the grant on covering wedding expenses and preference benchmarks in regards to applicants.

Official Website of UAE Prime Minister launched
www.uaepm.ae; posted on 21/03/2009

Congruent with the concerted devotion of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, to opening all communication channels with everyone, the official website of the prime minister of the UAE has been developed. Launched by His Highness today, the website not only represents the official source of all information related to the prime minister, but also provides an effective communication channel between the prime minister and all relevant audiences inside and outside the UAE through the link: http://www.uaepm.ae.

The website is available in both Arabic and English, and it covers a variety of important areas. A section is dedicated for presenting the roles and responsibilities of the vice president and prime minister of the UAE. Others sections are dedicated for covering the daily news of His Highness the Prime Minister, the latest developments at the federal government level, as well as His Highness's statements, quotes, and speeches at the various occasions. The website also covers the basic principles, goals, and highlights of the UAE federal government strategy, the biographies of previous prime ministers, along with information taken from the UAE constitution about the structure and specialization of the Cabinet as well as the different entities representing the authority of the Federal Government.

Meanwhile, and in line with His Highness's interest in achieving transparency in dealing with the media and disseminating information about the federal government, the media e-session facility has been activated through the website. Media e-sessions are a mechanism for communication between journalists with the Prime Minister of the UAE, wherein their questions about the federal government, its strategy, directions, and the strategic affairs of its various ministries and authorities are submitted for the consideration of the Prime Minister, whose answers are then published on the website periodically.
Similarly, and reaffirming the guiding principle of positioning citizens and residents at the core of government efforts and in the centre of its strategy, a page has been established to enable everyone in the UAE to communicate directly with the Prime Minister of the UAE. Users can fill electronic forms to raise their comments and suggestions about any matter related to the federal government of the UAE.

Developed by the Government Communications Office within the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs, the official website of the prime minister of the UAE presents one of the most important government communication tools utilized by the Federal Government to disseminate accurate information about His Highness in his capacity as the Prime Minister of the UAE. The website will be used to project the directions, vision, and positions of His Highness on all the issues facing the federal government.
Although establishing an online presence is not new to His Highness, launching this website achieves stronger online presence at the federal government level and highlights His Highness's role as prime minister, strengthening in the process internal and external communication channels in light of the Federal Government Strategy.

Hmmmm, that does make one wonder about that business purpose. Found the following bit of history interesting while looking at population stats for the UAE (4.5 million population). Small country but seems it will get its own idn.idn. Seems to still make sense that idn.com will be the best play to cover the broader Arabic internet for goods and services for the entire Arabic speaking world.

from WIKIPEDIA
British and Ottomans
Then, portions of the nation came under the direct influence of the Ottoman Empire during the 16th century. Thereafter the region was known to the British as the "Pirate Coast", as raiders based there harassed the shipping industry despite both European and Arab navies patrolling the area from the 17th century into the 19th century. British expeditions to protect the Indian trade from raiders at Ras al-Khaimah led to campaigns against that headquarters and other harbours along the coast in 1819. The next year, a peace treaty was signed to which all the sheikhs of the coast adhered. Raids continued intermittently until 1835, when the sheikhs agreed not to engage in hostilities at sea. In 1853, they signed a treaty with the United Kingdom, under which the sheikhs (the "Trucial Sheikhdoms") agreed to a "perpetual maritime truce." It was enforced by the United Kingdom, and disputes among sheikhs were referred to the British for settlement.
