Much to the astonishment of most countries, considering that majority of them are battling issues such as terror, hunger, deprivation and wars, the UAE has adopted, since its establishment, a wise and different policy. It has focused and embraced all important and beautiful aspects that are necessary in making our life better. By doing so, the UAE has become an unquestionable haven for security, tranquility and comfort.
Every year, we have a new and unique initiative that embodies the most beautiful meaning of giving and generosity as well as wishing good and happiness towards others. The helping hands of Emirati people have extended to the needy in all parts of the world.
The year 2018, “The Year of Zayed”, coincides with the convening of the 47th edition of IFTDO Conference in the United Arab Emirates, a land of love and peace. And in accordance with the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Makthoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has directed the setting up of a comprehensive framework to implement the “The Year of Zayed” initiative. The move is crystal clear proof that we deserve these initiatives and that we are going to implement them. We bring all brotherly and friendly nations together in our beloved land. You are most welcome to United Arab Emirates. You are here for happiness in the country of happiness; a country whose people hold the title of “The happiest people”. The system of this country is homogeneous, harmonious and coherent, thanks to the Government of Dubai, the Dubai Police General Command, and the hard working sons and daughters of this blessed land who have opened their hearts to all visitors and guests.
