The UAE's message of tolerance resonates across the world that is riven by many divisions. It's a unique approach to solving global problems and the UAE has understood that people are different and they will thrive when an environment is created for them to interact and appreciate differences. Celebrating differences and finding common ground is vital for peace. This approach has paid off as the country enters a new decade and charts out economic plans that will define the future.

Tolerance, when it becomes part of state policy, has many benefits. The stress is on our shared humanity. What is it that unites us? Art, culture, beliefs and food, promote bonding. People from the same countries hang out together and the UAE is the best place where have opportunities to live and work or simply celebrate life. They can explore as tourists or plan on living and working here. More that 200 nationalities call this great country home because it offers something for everyone. A modern country is not just inviting, but is also giving to those in need. It possesses soft power like the UAE which promotes peace.
