The UAE presents one of the few balanced development models that are characterized by the ability to adapt to changes and contingencies to achieve the ambitions of the people. This was explained by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in his statements that the UAE is trying to provide conditions propitious for the exchange between different cultures to promote tolerance and peace that are inherent to the Emirati model at a moment the world is witnessing increasing instability that are due to the surging extremism and terrorism. This situation results in squandering resources and jeopardizing development achievements throughout the past years.

The UAE is set and committed to spreading the culture of tolerance and openness and mutual existence. Such initiatives helped the Emirati society fend off crises and overcome challenges, thus becoming an attractive destination for all the peoples of the world.

This special status of the UAE was achieved thanks to a strong bond between the leadership and the people that is built on understanding, credibility and mutual trust which represents an incentive putting the UAE on the path of progress and sustainable development.
