Statement of His Excellency Ahmad bin Meshar Al Muhairi, SLC Secretary General, on the UAE National Day
UAE, 1 December 2018 – “Today, we mark the 2nd of December, a day which witnessed a unique milestone in the history of our country that boasts myriad cultural achievements; a day that laid the foundation of a powerful union, the UAE, that has given the world a unique model of advancement, development, and progress. The UAE National Day is a reflection of the national solidarity and strong bond between the Emirati people and their leadership, inspired by the UAE founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
As we celebrate the 47th anniversary of the UAE’s union under the theme ‘This is Zayed. This is the UAE’, we recall with pride that our country has joined the ranks of the most advanced countries in the world. The founding father believed that the human development is the power engine of civilization and progress. This belief continues to this day under the reign of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, to achieve comprehensive development that is based on the fundamental values of tolerance, peaceful coexistence, equality, justice, giving, and respect for human dignity.
This year, also in celebrating the “Year of Zayed”, we, at the Supreme Legislation Committee in the Emirate of Dubai, renew our commitment to attaining legislative excellence by drafting pioneering legislation that keeps pace with a fast-paced present and looks ahead to the future, as inspired by the wisdom of our country’s founding father who believed that the rule of law is the cornerstone of the UAE advancement. On this most cherished national occasion, we extend our warmest congratulations to our wise leadership and reaffirm our commitment to maintaining the UAE’s reputation as a haven of safety, security, and stability, as well as a world-class unique model of progress and prosperity.
