August 6, 2017  
The Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, in response to the President's directives and to achieve the year’s goals, called for the launch of a comprehensive framework to develop an integrated and consolidated agenda that activates initiatives within all federal and local institutions.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said, "We celebrate the centennial anniversary of the birth of one of the greatest and most noble men who dedicated his life for the present and future of the nation."

The Vice President and Ruler of Dubai added, "We are inspired by the Zayed school of leadership and management. With the founding blocks of the Union State placed by the late Sheikh Zayed, from which we are all reaping the benefits, we will continue this path and look forward with optimism to the future.

He continued, "This is why we have launched the "UAE Centennial 2071", which includes a comprehensive government programme with a national strategy to enhance the country's reputation and soft power and ensure that there are sustainable and diverse sources of government revenues."

The aims, His Highness said, are to invest in education that focuses on advanced technology, to build a system of ethical values for our future generations, to boost productivity of the national economy, and to enhance community cohesion.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid went on to say, "the noble values and traditions of the late Sheikh Zayed represent a true wealth and a source of pride for all those in the UAE, an inexhaustible well of giving from which current and future generations learn how to sacrifice all that is precious for the homeland. This is a supreme goal that we adhere to, and one to which we all work towards, to have the strength needed to survive difficulties no matter how large they may be, armed with perseverance and patience."

"Sheikh Zayed has instilled in us the willpower and determination to challenge and achieve the impossible. This is why we are always convinced that we are capable of being pioneers and to become one of the best countries in the world. He inspired us to see his way to the future, to follow in his footsteps with confidence and insight, and to consolidate the gains and achievements," he added.

Sheikh Mohammed noted how the late founding father was a role model of how a ruler interacted with his people. "He was modest, and he personally checked on the needs of citizens. He would visit their homes and attend their occasions, thereby creating a unique bond with the people, becoming an inspiration to many in our region and the world."

The Ruler of Dubai also highlighted the successful management skills of the late Sheikh Zayed, who, he said, had the ability to make the right decisions in all fields and implement them, thus establishing the foundations for a successful and effective government administration for our time.
