Where the
UAE Meets the World

Honoring the past. Improving the present. Shaping our future.

A resource-rich economy that invests aggressively in renewable energy and climate action. A progressive Muslim nation with one of the most diverse populations in the world that empowers women and champions pluralism. A once rural people who invested heavily in education, health, and infrastructure to build a global hub for commerce and culture in a matter of decades.

The UAE’s modern history is a story of collaboration and progress. In the early 1970s, seven emirates united because we could accomplish more together than alone. The same spirit guides our approach to the world today.

We have the will and the resources to confront global threats and to harness emerging technologies for the benefit of all. Our multicultural society embodies what can be achieved by rejecting fear, practicing inclusion, and embracing human potential. As one of the largest providers of development and humanitarian assistance in the world, our values extend beyond our borders. 

Today’s threats to peace, security, and prosperity are daunting, but not insurmountable. Our founding father, His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, cherished dialogue as the bridge to resolving differences. Guided by this vision, working as a committed member of the United Nations, and serving as a partner to other nations across the globe, we are determined to succeed.
