“I am honoured to convey my best wishes to His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE; His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces; and Their Highnesses the Members of the Supreme Council and Rulers of the Emirates; Their Highnesses the Crown Princes; the Deputy Rulers; and the citizens and residents of our generous country, on the occasion of Flag Day. Every year, Emiratis represent the highest forms of unity, solidarity and loyalty to the UAE, synonyms for goodness, hope, and tolerance, and a celebration of the values of our Founding Fathers, to empower human potential in all areas and raise the UAE’s flag high across the whole world,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.
“Flag Day has special importance this year, as the citizens and residents of the UAE celebrate the Year of the Fiftieth. Their hearts are full of pride at the achievements and milestones realised by the UAE. The UAE ranks first in the MENA region, and ninth globally in the International Institute for Management Development’s 2021 World Competitiveness Yearbook (WCY). The UAE has also become a leading country in space science and technology, as all eyes turn to Dubai, which hosts Expo 2020, the biggest event on the global agenda. As we prepare for the coming 50 years, to make the UAE the world’s leading nation by its Centennial 2071, we continue our loyal and hard work, guided by the vision of our wise leadership, united as one under the UAE flag, the symbol of our sovereignty and belonging, to build a sustainable future and strengthen our comprehensive development,” added Al Tayer.
