For more than an hour amidst cheering crowds, Shaikh Mohammed visited the pavilions of Yemen, Turkey, Kuwait, Iran, Morocco, Syria, Egypt, UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Spain and Qatar. He also proceeded to the Khalifa Charity Foundation stand where local producing families display their products. He also spent some time at stands of young entrepreneurs who are supported by Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for Small and Medium Size Enterprises.

Shaikh Mohammed said he was pleased to see this Arab and international gathering on the UAE soil, saying such engagement of sisterly and friendly countries underscores the vital role of our country as a liaison point between the east and west and as a bridge of communication between world cultures and civilisations. He commended the idea of creating the Global Village as an oasis bringing different peoples of the world to the UAE, the land of love, and human co-existence and tolerance. Shaikh Mohammed concluded his tour by watching part of Faza Yola Dance and Meydan Competition.

For the past 15 years, Global Village has been providing cultural entertainment along with an international shopping experience to millions of visitors.
