The Emiratis shared Sheikh Zayed’s love, loyalty and faithfulness during his lifetime in a rare relationship that emanated from his resolve to achieve his people’s aspirations; his memory lives on in the hearts of the people.

Sheikh Zayed’s successors have continued to proudly proclaim his accomplishments and the realisation of his ambitions. His strong bond with Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum and the founding fathers continues in the current bond that links His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, and their Highnesses the rulers of the Emirates.

The advanced and modern state of the UAE, which synchronizes and maintains its historical traditions and authentic heritage with the modern UAE, is the true dream of the founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed.
