UAE's Population to Rise to 7.5 mn in 2010

Abu Dhabi, Jan 24 (IANS) The National Human Resources Development and Employment Authority (Tanmia) of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said the country's population will increase to 7.55 million in 2010, WAM news agency reported Sunday.

The current population of the UAE is 5.63 million.

The UAE population doubles every 8.7 years compared to 55 years for world population, Tanmia said.

The increase in population, comprising both UAE nationals and expatriates, would lead to the worsening of the demographic imbalance in the country.

It cited that the percentage of the UAE nationals' increase to the population growth dropped from 24.4 percent to 15.4 percent between 1995 and 2006.

It predicted that the population would further drop to 13.3 percent in 2010, if appropriate correctional procedures and policies were not taken to address the issue.
