“Under the leadership and guidance of the President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE strives for competitive advantage in the global marketplace,” Shaikh Nahyan said.

“To succeed, we must increase the participation of our private sector in national development, and in turn, in the global economy. Our entrepreneurs must learn how to work, and compete, effectively on the global stage. They must be prepared to play an important role in shaping our economic future,” he added.

Shaikh Nahyan called for establishing a regional ‘think tank’ that would nurture ideas and initiatives by youth and prepare the ground for best practices and a successful future.

At the end of the session, Shaikh Mohammed signed copies of his best-selling book ‘My Vision’ for the participants.
