The UAE government has also placed a great emphasis on digital literacy and preparing its present and future workforce for the challenges and opportunities of the digital age. We, at Microsoft, have been a proud partner to the UAE government on this mission. Our Microsoft Youth Council, which acts a bridge between us and the UAE government, serves as a platform for the UAE’s youth to give back to their communities, as well as raise their voices on key topics such as diversity, inclusion, philanthropy, and corporate social responsibility. In addition, our Tomoh Program empowers young Emiratis with future-ready skills so that they are ready to drive the next wave of the UAE’s digital transformation. On behalf of everyone at Microsoft, we would like to congratulate the UAE’s leadership and its people on the country’s 52nd National Day. We look forward to helping accelerate the nation’s transformation into one of the most competitive and digitally advanced economies in the world.”

I wish to extend congratulations to the visionary leaders of the UAE on the occasion of National Day. Having actively been a part of the startup ecosystems of Germany, Hong Kong, India, and the UAE, it is with great conviction that I affirm Dubai's exceptional commitment to fostering innovation. Dubai, in my experience, surpasses its counterparts in its unwavering support for entrepreneurs. The city goes above and beyond in dismantling bureaucratic hurdles and obstructions, creating an environment that is not only conducive but propulsive for startups.

The expeditious removal of red tape and obstacles sets Dubai apart, facilitating the seamless transition of entrepreneurial ideas into robust and flourishing ventures. As someone who has navigated various global startup landscapes, I commend the visionary leaders of the UAE for creating a business-friendly atmosphere that truly empowers entrepreneurs to transform concepts into tangible success stories. Once again, congratulations on this momentous National Day celebration.
