According to Business Market International Research (BMI), The UAE ranks among the top 15 defense spenders in the world. Defense expenditure as a proportion of GDP has remained high in recent years, reflecting the elevated threat to the country's security. Economic prosperity, coupled with a lack of organized political opposition domestically, has enabled the UAE government to keep defense spending high on a global comparison, despite the recent budget reductions implemented amid lower oil prices. The UAE, is a major importer of US military equipment, and the U.S. continues to enhance the capacities of allied armed forces in the GCC region.
