His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has shared an empowering message about the country.

As part of the ‘Flashes of Leadership’ campaign, His Highness posted a video to Instagram showcasing how far the UAE has come and what the future holds for the nation.

Footage in the video showcases the incredible sights of the new Expo 2020 site, whilst sharing an enlightening message about the prosperity of the country.

“The UAE is called the country of the future,” the Dubai Ruler says. “Every person who lives in this country loves every grain of sand in it – and we adore the UAE.”

His Highness goes on to share just how the nation has gotten to this point – through passion and love for their country.

“The UAE has progressed through our love and collaboration,” he added.

The short video ended with a poignant saying from Sheikh Mohammed. “The UAE is not a worldwide country. But it is the world within a country,” he said.

This is particularly relevant as the UAE gears to welcome millions of visitors for Expo 2020 Dubai.

Expo 2020 Dubai will officially start on October 1, 2021 and will be a six-month-long extravaganza ending on March 31, 2022.
