UAE provides world-class model of stability, development and happiness


Akhbar Al Saah bulletin has emphasized that any country of the world where the happiness, satisfaction and welfare of citizens are the top priority of its leadership must enjoy security and stability and confidently push its way forward, no matter how formidable difficulties and challenges are. This is the case with the UAE, which provides a world-class model of stability, development and citizens’ absolute loyalty to their nation and prudent leadership.

Under the title “Citizens’ happiness is our prudent leadership’s priority”, the bulletin said there is a fundamental message that is repeatedly delivered by our exceptional leadership to the UAE citizens signifying that their happiness, satisfaction and welfare are its top priority and ultimate objective behind all schemes and strategies laid down by the local and federal organizations.

The bulleting, which is issued by the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research, added that citizens daily experience this reality, either when they witness the UAE leadership’s immediate and comprehensive response to their needs and aspirations or through the most advanced government services, top-of-the-line infrastructure, peace, security and stability, empowerment, and opening up of opportunities for employment and creativity in all fields.

The bulletin said the expressive words of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in the second report on federal government work 2010-2013 served this end. The happiness and welfare of citizens has been the UAE government’s ultimate goal as per the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Sheikh Mohammed said. The bulletin quoted HH Sheikh Mohammed as saying “We are always planning for the future and contemplating on the things we can offer to the nation and the younger generations.”

The bulletin added that this means that the government, under the directives and continuous follow-up of HH the President, makes citizens its top priority and always seeks to make strides in this direction. The ultimate goal of the UAE wise leadership is to make its citizens the happiest and most satisfied on the Arab, regional and international parameters, the bulletin said.

What makes the UAE so unique and credible is its ability to follow a defined development agenda, which begins with making its people happy and improving their quality of life, the bulletin added, noting that this fact was highlighted by all credible global indices. The bulletin noted that in the United Nations Happiness Survey for 2013, the people of the UAE ranked the happiest in the Arab world and 14th on the top 20 happiest peoples around the world.

The bulletin concluded that according to ASDA’A Burson-Marsteller’s 5th annual survey of Arab youth in 2013, the UAE topped the list of the best places to live in, ahead of France and the United States, which ranked 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Emirates ID.. Date for Meeting


I go back with my imagination and thoughts to the past time, the beautiful time that went fast, leaving us helpless about it. I search the folds of laughs for our happiness but sensations take me to the dreams that come to our minds as a beautiful spectrum that pushes its way as a transient shadow. I see the seconds go in front of us but we still have the same feeling; our books are still filled with our childhood drawings and our seats still have the warmth of our stories.

I am telling you my little story at my place of work: the Emirates Identity Authority, which seems to me as a warm lap and a miniature home where I can find myself and feel my existence; it is the date of meeting, the fragrance of the past and the glitter of the bright future, God willing.

On one working day, specifically in the evening period, I was busy checking on ID card transactions before sending them for printing when I heard the voice of a female employee from the Registration Section asking her colleagues for change of an AED100 banknote. I checked my purse for change of AED100 and was able to collect AED100 in smaller denominations. I went to the employee’s office to give her what she had asked for. Surprisingly, I came across a customer of familiar features to me, though the elapse of a long time prevented me from remembering her name or who she was.

I tried hard to recall the place and time in which we met together. Following a deep journey to the past and after we talked together, we went back to the days of our study in the preparatory stage when we shared the same classroom. I have never seen her since the end of the last academic year in which we were together. I heard later that she got married at an early age and did not complete her studies. Many years elapsed before we could meet again at the Emirates Identity Authority: I as an employee and she as a customer. I can now remember her features despite the long years that elapsed and I am sure now that one does not forget the wonderful times he spent, that what one knew when one was young will live in one’s memory as long as one lives and that meeting the beloved and friends is possible though they had to separate for a long time.

finally, I would like to thank my beloved Emirates Identity Authority for the opportunities it offers us to meet people. I am proud of it and of being a member of its family; it is the beautiful present, the promising future and the place that embraces our happy memories, which we will proudly pass to our children and grandchildren.
