Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), the Government of Dubai Authority with a mandate to establish Dubai as the global gateway for commodity trade and enterprise, celebrated the UAE National Day at Almas Tower in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, to mark the unification of the seven Emirates in 1971.
Addressing DMCC employees, Ahmed Bin Sulayem, DMCC’s Executive Chairman, said:
“The UAE National Day signifies that the impossible is possible, just look at the UAE’s achievements over the last 42 years and how as one country we are continuously driven to excel regionally and internationally.
Under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan the late President of the UAE, Dubai and the UAE have become a place that offers opportunities for everyone. This is the true spirit of the UAE.
As our foreign relations grow stronger every day we will continue to make this a reality under the visionary leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.”
