The UAE has a new vision for the Middle East region — an alternative, future-oriented ideology grounded in respect, inclusion, and peace. It is a vision that rejects extremism and factionalism, and instead embraces diversity, empowers women, encourages innovation, and welcomes global engagement. These values are reflected throughout the country’s vibrant and diverse society, where over 200 nationalities and countless faiths live and worship side-by-side.

(The) UAE has taken its success and been willing to invest in new learning, new innovation. It is great to see that that kind of long-term approach is part of how they are taking their success and becoming a hub of people from different regions.
