What will the United Arab Emirates look like in 30 thirty years? Dubai's current affairs commentator Mishaal Al-Gergawi provides semi-fictional foresight.

Al-Manakh is a publication focused on examining new urban developments in the Gulf region. Recently, they published an article calling attention to how the sister cities Abu Dhabi (AUH) and Dubai (DXB) are destined to develop their partnership.

Mishaal Al-Gergawi, the author, provides profound insight into the future of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The article is basically a story that looks into the future; it contains insights articulating how the two cities will come together:

1) Proximity: While most global cities are far from their sister cities (i.e. Beijing-Shanghai, New York-Los Angeles, Frankfurt-Berlin), only 120 kilometers (75 miles) separate AUH and DXB. As their outer-regions expand, this distance will grow smaller and smaller.
