The United Arab Emirates recently announced it would shift its weekend to Saturday and Sunday in order to better align with the international markets and economy. The announcement also introduced a new four and half-day work week, a step that is taken by only a few countries in the world.

As of now, the UAE has a Friday-Saturday weekend, something they plan to change from 1 January, 2022. Office hours on Friday would end by noon, according to the directions put out by the government's Twitter handle.
