Agriculture and livestock raising make up only 2 percent of the GDP. These pursuits are important, however, because the UAE has achieved a significant level of self-sufficiency in several food categories, including vegetables, eggs, and dairy products. The country is a major date producer for both domestic consumption and export. Many of the farms are small, but since agriculture is supported by generous government subsidies it is no longer a subsistence activity.
