The move will allow the country to align its economy with the global market, but private companies will be free to choose their own working week.




Currently, UAE has a Friday-Saturday weekend which most of the countries in the Gulf have been implementing.



According to the tweet, the longer weekend in mean to "boost productivity and improve work-life balance."
