UAE National Day ‘Our Vision – Our Future’

The ways in which the people of the UAE celebrate are as diverse as the people themselves, with buildings being lit up in red, white, black and green across the country as everyone rejoices in the ongoing success of this great nation. With this in mind, we at Al Halabi would like to applaud and express gratitude to all of the Sheikhs and Rulers of the UAE as we celebrate UAE National Day on December 2nd, particularly the President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nehyan, and the Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The UAE is, of course, universally recognised as being one of the most innovative and forward-looking countries on earth, with its mid and long-term vision being to build an exciting and prosperous future for everyone.

Indeed, Vision 2021 aims to make the UAE one of the best countries in the world by the time the nation celebrates its Golden Jubilee – 2021. That’s not too far away now, but even before then the UAE will have been successful in sending an unmanned spacecraft to Mars under its probe known as ‘Hope’. It is scheduled to take-off in 2020 and is expected to take nine months to cover the journey of 62 million kilometres to the Red Planet.

However, the UAE is looking a lot further ahead than this, culminating in the establishment of the first inhabitable human settlement on Mars by 2117. Prior to this, though, a number of incredible milestones will have been reached, not least the Dubai Industrial Strategy 2030, which will turn the emirate into a global platform for knowledge-based, sustainable and innovation-focused businesses.

All across the UAE plans are in place for a thriving future, including the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, which aims to ensure the transformation of the economy, including a reduced reliance on the oil sector and a greater focus on knowledge-based industries.

Meanwhile, the Fujairah 2040 Plan focuses on enhancing housing and transportation infrastructure. The emirate has already begun work on road improvements, building water barriers, ports and residential complexes and expanding healthcare facilities at the cost of AED 1.5 billion.

Everywhere you look plans are in motion and the excitement on the street is palpable. Nevertheless, at this time of year it is also important to look back and remember those who are no longer with us, specifically the brave souls who have sacrificed their lives for their country. UAE Commemoration Day will take place on November 30th, and like everyone else in this great nation of ours, at Al Halabi we will give thanks and salute the brave martyrs who went before us.
