UAE at Glance
HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan 6 May 1918 – 2 November 2004) was the founding father and the principal driving force behind the formation of the UAE, uniting seven emirates and becoming the Union’s first President a post which he held for a period of almost 33 years (1971 until his death in 2004). He was also the ruler of Abu Dhabi for more than 30 years (6 August 1966– 2 November 2004). He is commonly referred to in the UAE as the Father of the Nation.
Zayed oversaw the establishment of the Abu Dhabi Fund for Arab Economic Development; some of its oil riches were channeled to some forty less fortunate Islamic nations in Asia and Africa during the decades that followed.
Using the country’s enormous oil revenues, Zayed built institutions such as hospitals, schools and universities and made it possible for UAE citizens to enjoy free access to them. He was also known for making donations to the tune of millions [pounds sterling] for worthy causes around the Arab World as well as in the neighbouring countries and in the world at large.
The United Arab Emirates owes a great debt of gratitude to the perseverance, wisdom, and forward vision of its founding fathers, who in those early days invested all their efforts and took careful stock of their resources in order to chart the path that has shaped our great nation. In this quest they rose to the challenge of building a modern and progressive nation, in order that the Emirati people may share in the fruits of their common development. The UAE can count many impressive accomplishments since its inception, and now stands among the most advanced nations in the world. Local and international businesses and individuals have reaped many benefits from this remarkable pace of development while also preserving the fabric of their society, the essence of their way of life and the strength of their culture. This Vision charts the next stage of our journey leading up until the year 2030, when we will celebrate the golden jubilee of our beloved union. While this Vision is inspired by the principles of our founding Fathers, it is also guided by the National Work Program launched by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the UAE, and adopted by Their Highnesses the Rules of the Emirates and Members of the Federal Supreme Council. As we look to the future and embark on a journey of empowerment at all levels, we must steer a course among challenges on many fronts with confidence, optimism and determination. There will be challenges to the family ties that bind us together the strong fabric of our cohesive society; challenges to out economic competitiveness; challenges to our national identity; challenges to health, education, environment and well being.
