Rare video shows how late Sheikh Hamdan inspired Dubai to be No. 1
"If we are doing something for Dubai, we always do it Class A, nothing less," he once said.
The late Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum will always be remembered for his commitment to serving Dubai and the UAE. For him, the country deserves nothing but the best.
As the nation honoured the memory of the finance minister and Dubai’s deputy ruler, the emirate’s media office on Thursday shared an inspiring sound byte of the beloved leader's words. “If we (the government) are doing something for Dubai, we always do it Class A, nothing less, Always class A,” he had said.
Another clip on the Dubai Media Office Twitter account captured Sheikh Hamdan as a visionary leader. In the video, he can be seen talking about one of the strategies for sea port operations in the emirate.
“The ruler believed that it is important to operate the second port, to help support the old Rashid port. The UAE has many ports, but because the area is developing, the ruler believed that we should do this. It is not affecting the economy negatively, on the contrary, it helps our economy. And it makes it ready for the time when we need such things,” he said.
