UAE citizens working in the government sector can take up to a year’s leave to start their own business ventures. The leave will pay half the salary, with citizens being able to retain their jobs.

“Our goal is to encourage the youth to take advantage of the huge commercial opportunities offered by our national economy,” Sheikh Mohammed tweeted.
