“Each year the spirit of the union gains strength…….. we excel in a variety of sectors and areas, surpassing achievements we’d reached the previous year. There are so many stories across this nation that fill me with pride. Whether it is here in the UAE or that the United Arab Emirates is more than just a place on the map. We are now firmly etched in the world’s mind.”

Hajeri said the UAE has come a long way in a short space of time, adding that with the guidance of the country’s leaders, the nation has “grasped the true value of hard work, helping the UAE further push limits, and achieve its goals.”

He said the year 2014 has seen a number of initiatives take shape and come to fruition and that all of them have been important.

You, the person sitting on your left and the person sitting on your right, each and every one of you is giving back by contributing to the Tawazun story,” he said.

“Our progress and contribution is a result of the evolution of this country and of course, your dedication and service… today, I want you to join me in demonstrating your commitment to this country and our leadership on the occasion of National Day. May we all continue to be guided by our leaders, and look to achieve further success, progress and development.”
