This feature on the United Arab Emirates is comprised of three articles. "Ports--Sitting on the Fence" discusses how UAE ports could play a major role in the reconstruction of the war-ravaged Persian Gulf area. "Endangered Species" concerns a debate about modifying UAE road regulations to restrict maximum vehicle weights, a change that could jeopardize a unique system that permits trucks to carry up to four TEU. Lastly, "Uplift Needed" describes how the UAE is finding it difficult to make headway in the sea/air cargo field owing to competition from alternative hub zones, higher airfreight charges and communication problems between its sea and airport communities.
