UAE bent on development, sustainability and global peace, says Nahyan bin Mubarak ABU DHABI, 28th January 2016 (WAM) – The tremendous progress UAE has witnessed since 45 years is due to the country’s ability to evolve and its steady pursuit of development, sustainability and global peace, Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, has said.
Sheikh Nahyan made the remarks during a dinner he hosted last night for a business delegation from the US state of Texas, a delegation from the Washington-based Zayed Institute of Paediatric Surgical Innovations (SZIPSI) and a delegation of the Indian cinema industry.
“The UAE is like an Arab tent which combines under it shadow people from different nationalities, races, cultures and beliefs. The UAE is committed to respecting this diversity and understanding the people’s different backgrounds,” he said.
Sheikh Nahyan further said the UAE seeks to diversify its resources, recalling a statement by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan that the nation’s key investment is its qualified and skilled youth.
“Thanks to the wise policies of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the UAE is now playing a vital role in global stability and development. The country is heavily involved in the international efforts to develop energy and is a force to reckon with in terms of innovation, development and progress in the Middle East,” he added.
