The UAE is the region's best place to live in, according to every quality of life report worth its salt. Mercer's latest Quality of Living survey released earlier this year slots Dubai as the leader in the region with Abu Dhabi close on its heels. Both the UAE cities ranked in the survey continue to amass high scores in political and social environment, business environment, education and public services. The country is ranked 21 out of 190 countries in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business index. And it's the 10th best place in the world for expats, according to the HSBC's Expat Explorer survey unveiled this year. This column is way too small to mention all the credible reports and surveys that peg the UAE among the best countries to live, work, invest and play.
But if you'd for a moment think that the country's leadership would be happy to rest on those laurels, well, you're mistaken. The UAE Cabinet, chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, yesterday approved the National Strategy for Wellbeing 2031 to make the UAE a world leader in the quality of life standards.
It is this single-minded focus of the country's wise leaders on the well-being of the UAE citizens and residents that is responsible for this young nation achieving in a very short time what some other nations took centuries. Following a scientific, three-tiered approach of individual, society and the country, the strategy deploys a feedback-based mechanism to support policymaking.
Over the past 48 years, the UAE has judiciously invested its resources in the critical domains of education, infrastructure, healthcare, and security. Coupled with its policy of zero tolerance of crime and corruption, this has helped the country arrive at a happy formula for a prosperous and bright future. This new distinctive and far-reaching strategy aims to improve the physical, psychological and digital health of future generations and lays the foundation of an even happier future for the country's denizens.
