Model of Interaction between Leadership and the People
- 5 May 2013
The UAE is setting a pioneering model for constructive interaction between the leadership and the people – as our wise leadership gives top priority to the interests of the citizens and spares no effort in providing them with a decent life. Similarly, the leadership is highly appreciated by the citizens who are willing to play an active role in national development and boost UAE’s status among other nations of the world.
The interaction of His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, with UAE citizens in Al Dhaid on Friday is an example of the close relations between our wise leaders and the people and a true reflection of the policy of openness which this relationship is based on. His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who was keen to learn about the needs of the citizens, said that: “Special care is given by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces (may God protect him) to public concerns, and His Highness the President believes in providing a decent life to citizens, whom he considers the true treasure of this nation.”
The UAE’s wise leadership strongly believes that the human capital is the most invaluable resource and that effective and positive contribution to the development process is the means for national progress and prosperity. His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s statement made in Al Dhaid that “our leaders are keen to communicate with the people and care to provide them a better service to both the nation and citizens” demonstrates the UAE citizen as central to the vision of national development by our wise leadership.
The human resources, the main engine of development, are the country’s most invaluable asset. This explains the keenness of our wise leaders to listen to the citizenry and make efforts to promote their welfare, in areas such as modern education, comprehensive medical care and social services to provide citizens with a decent life. It is the tangible manifestation of the Empowerment Stage launched by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan by “providing an environment conducive for the empowerment of citizens in order to contribute to their social and political life.”
During their meeting with His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, citizens expressed their heartfelt gratitude, satisfaction and loyalty. There was reciprocity of mutual affection and appreciation between the leadership and the people. This is the magic mantra for the security, stability and welfare of the UAE.
