Mohammed: Khalifa is an example of unlimited giving

WAM Dubai, 29th Nov. 2013 (WAM) — Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum emphasised that investment in human development is the only guarantee to our march towards a better tomorrow. Man is the engine of development and his thoughts open more horizons and his ambition makes civilization that he protects from deterioration and distances from regression.

Sheikh Mohammed’s statement came during an interview with “Dira’a Al Watan” Magazine, conducted by editor in chief Maj. Gen. Yousef Juma Al Haddad. Sheikh Mohammed said that maintaining the pinnacle of success is harder than trying to attain it, so the position we have reached imposes on us to continue to work on developing our capabilities, raising our competencies and diversifying our resources not only to keep successes we have achieved but also to enter a new stage of development. We have been so keen, throughout our journey of development, to always start from where others have ended. Our experience is firmly established and solid enhanced by our deep-rooted heritage and authenticity of our culture to get to the future before it comes to us laden with conditions that impose on us to form the reality of our lives and its vocabulary.. We are best able to draw our paths in life by ourselves.

Sheikh Mohammed also asserted that President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, may God protect him, is an example of unlimited giving and his white hands extend far beyond the UAE to reach different parts of the world. This giving reminds us of the great contributions which immortalized the memory of the father late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and granted him a special status in the hearts of millions of people around the world.

His Highness pointed out that in 2012 the UAE contributed by nearly AED 5.8 billion of aid from which people from 137 countries and geographic regions around the world benefited.

Sheikh Mohammed highly valued UAE woman’s achievements, stressing the UAE continues to achieve more empowerment of woman by giving her whatever may help her to accordingly play her part in society .
