The name of BIN AWEIDHA GROUP dates back to 1958 after the first commercial delegation left the Emirate of Abu Dhabi for Britain (before establishment of the United Arab Emirates). His Excellency Rashid Bin Aweidha was one of the leading members of the delegation in his capacity as one of the pioneer businessmen of the Emirate who had extensive international relations. That is before the emergence of UAE’s as a Federal State. On July 18, 1971, rulers of six emirates from those known as the Trucial Coast states, ratified the provisional constitution of the UAE. A product of more than three years of discussion and debate among the rulers, the document was promulgated on December 2, 1971, on the UAE’s independence. (Ras al Khaymah joined the union in February 1972.) The provisional constitution of the UAE provides for the separation of powers into executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Additionally, it separates legislative and executive powers into federal and emirate jurisdictions. Certain powers are expressly reserved for the central government, including foreign policy, defense, security, immigration, and communications. The individual emirates exercise residual powers.
