Salem bin Ham was a close confidant of late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who entrusted him with tasks related to the national duties which he performed successfully because of his strong relationship with shaikhs, heads of tribes in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain and others across the country before and after the UAE federation came into existence. He had served as a member of the National Consultative Council of the emirate of Abu Dhabi forseveral years.
