The UAE is everyone’s country and everyone’s home, said His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Sheikh Mohammed’s statement came on the eve of the 13th edition of the annual Asda’a BCW Arab Youth Survey released on Tuesday.

“We say that the UAE is everyone's country and everyone's home. Our experience will remain available to everyone. Our relations will remain positive with everyone,” Sheikh Mohammed said in a tweet on Tuesday.

The annual survey results showed that the UAE is the preferred country to live for 47 per cent of Arab youth, followed by the United States (19 per cent) and Canada (15 per cent).

Arab youth have named the UAE as the country in the world they would most like to live in and the one they would most like their own nation to emulate for the tenth straight year.
