What are some problems with ethnocentrism in the UAE?

Emirates have some problem with ethnocentrism; they don’t like some of the foreign people attitudes. For example, some foreign people wear clothes that they don’t cover their body. And some foreign male and female hugging each other or kissing in public.

How could these problems be overcome?

To lower the ethnocentrism rate in UAE, People should be educated about the different culture and be aware of the culture laws and ethics and respect it.
