Lieutenant General Shaikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Interior, said in a message that Civil Defence is one of the pillars of safety which generates confidence among investors and entrepreneurs.

This year the day will be marked at a function to be held in Dubai organised by the civil defense department.

Lt-Gen Shaikh Saif said today the world was marking the occasion with the slogan of "Civil Defence and the Economy". ''What captures one’s attention is that the slogan shows clearly the direct relation between civil defence and the economic activity, though such a link is not immediately felt,'' he noted.
