This National Day has a special significance to us all, as it represents a milestone in the history of our beloved nation. Today we celebrate the 50th anniversary of turning the dream of the union – established by the founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and his brothers the founding fathers – into a reality. This National Day we celebrate five decades of successive achievements in various economic, social, financial, scientific and cultural sectors, which have placed the UAE in leading ranks amongst the countries of the world, and established its position as a global civilized centre for tolerance, coexistence and peace. Since the aspirations of the United Arab Emirates for excellence are limitless, this year's National Day is the starting point for an all-inclusive national project, led by our wise leadership and the participation of all governmental and private entities including all members of society, to achieve a single and clear goal: Making the UAE the best country in the world by the UAE Centennial 2071. Launching the ‘Principles of the 50’ document - directed by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the State, and approved by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces – came as a guide to help all government entities chart out their sustainable development strategies for the next stage, in line with the inherent values of the UAE and with the goal of achieving the best life for the people of the Union and all its residents. On this occasion, as the Ministry of Finance, we renew our full commitment to achieving global leadership in the financial field, which contributes to achieving the vision and strategies of the United Arab Emirates. We will continue to work to enhance the country's competitiveness in all financial and economic indices, adopting a culture of innovation and creativity as a basis for our work in accordance with best international practices. -Ends- For more information, please contact: Mary Khamasmieh Weber Shandwick E: email@example.com Rawad Khattar Weber Shandwick E: RKhattar@webershandwick.com Sara Abuhassira Weber Shandwick E: SAbuhassira@webershandwick.com Send us your press releases to firstname.lastname@example.org © Press Release 2021 Disclaimer: The contents of this press release was provided from an external third party provider.
