On the 50th Anniversary of the UAE Union
With the declaration of the Year of the 50th by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, we stand at a momentous milestone in the history of the UAE. We are ready today more than ever to continue building the future of our country as we rely on the never-ending legacy and wisdom of our Founding Fathers. Our mission is to move steadfastly towards achieving significant accomplishments that reflect our vision of building a modern state. Our objective is for the people of the UAE to continue to lead their country in all fields.
Through history, we see our present selves, and the UAE is an exemplary model of coexistence between its citizens and residents. It provides them with the means through which they both can continue towards success. Today, we invite everyone to make use of the great opportunities as we extend our unlimited support for all creative innovators.
The secret of our success lies in our holistic vision, a forward-thinking approach and anticipating future possibilities. As we stride towards progress, we maintain a strong connection to our values and take great pride in our traditions. As Emiratis, we are known for our generosity, hospitality and chivalry. We are open to others, intelligent and capable of adapting to changing circumstances. The diversity in the UAE is a point of strength that has created a melting pot of cultures, allowing us to exchange valuable ideas, thoughts and information.
The youth of the UAE is a symbol of unwavering hope. They are the leaders of the future. The country grows with them and through their dedication and hard work. We place great trust in them and extend our unlimited support to them. They are the ones who will turn our ambitions into achievements. They are the protectors of our national assets. They are our hope on the journey towards success.
2021 is a momentous milestone in the history of our beloved country and the beginning of a journey into the next 50 years. As we plan our future, we are armed with a strong sense of purpose to realise our people’s ambitions and promote our role in enriching humanity. Fifty years…the world measures this period by a number of years, but we measure it by the countless achievements of our young nation. God blessed this country with Founding Fathers who were wise, patient and insightful. It is their exemplary leadership and vision that enabled us to continue our journey towards success.
Today, we feel proud of our accomplishments just as much as we feel confident to move forward with a will that believes nothing is impossible. There are no limits to our ambitions. No obstacles can stop us. This is what we learned in the school of life that is the UAE, and this is how our beloved country is known to the world.
