UAE’s 49th National Day
As the UAE marks 49 years of union on National Day, we remember with pride, appreciation and gratitude our Founding Fathers whose leadership laid the foundations for the advancement of our country and the establishment of the UAE. It is their vision and the example of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, that guides our people today and inspires the nation’s leadership to confidently strive into the future.
To celebrate this national anniversary, we have launched a feature film to look back at our country’s history, explore the present and imagine the future. The film captures the nation’s achievements over the decades, from industrial and economic development, to cultural and educational advances. It seeks to bring to life the vision for the next 50 years as the UAE plans for the future, while showcasing how the ‘impossible is possible’.
Today, we are living in an era characterized by innovation, exploration and creativity. The nation’s people embody this energy and as we thank our leadership, we also take pride in applauding the people that have made this journey possible.
Hear from our colleagues on the achievements and progress of the UAE, in celebration of the UAE’s National Day.
