Happy Birthday, UAE!
On its 36th birthday, the UAE has much to celebrate. Right from the inception of the federation in 1971 when the emirates joined hands to form a progressive and stable nation, the UAE has gone from strength to strength. It has achieved within a short period of time socio-economic successes which only a few countries in the world today can match. Speaking on the creation of the nation, the UAE President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, recently said, “December 2, 1971 will remain the most precious event in the country’s history… Our dream wouldn’t have come true without the support of great men and an ambitious, brave leader.”
With great honour and pride of being a resident here for half of my life time, I am happy to present through my page, a part of the celebrations that happened in Abu dhabi on 2nd December 2007.
