We are launching a new brand for the UAE to share the story of our nation with the rest of the world. We invite everyone to be part of choosing the logo that will represent our country for the next 50 years on . For every vote, we will plant a tree.
A new year starts tomorrow. We look forward to a year of optimism and hope, achievements and resilience. Happy New Year to our nation, the Arab region and humanity as we move towards a better, greater and brighter future.
We also outlined directions to raise Dubai's volume of non-oil foreign trade to AED2 trillion by 2025. To achieve this, we have assembled a team to set-up a new logistical & legislative framework to open new markets, as we prepare to become the capital of the new economy.
We also gave direction to enhance Dubai's international presence, through establishing 50 offices across 5 continents to promote Dubai's commercial, tourist & investment opportunities, while boosting our commodities, cultural & creative exports & our human talent.
The Dubai Council's work will dramatically increase in the coming months. 2020 will be a year of significant change & real transformation on our journey over the next decade. My message to the strong-willed among us is: prepare yourself for a new era full of possibility.
Trade has long been a key factor in the Emirates' economic growth, a legacy of pioneering opportunities and partnerships that helps us create win-win links globally. We look forward to working with our partners to make the Dubai Silk Road a new catalyst for global prosperity.

Dubai Metro was once a dream. I was 10 years old when I visited London in 1959 with my father who insisted to see a train's cockpit. 50 years later, Dubai Metro came true in 2009. Nothing is impossible if you can dream it.
UAE and the Indian community will unite to offer relief to those affected. We have formed a committee to start immediately. We urge everyone to contribute generously towards this initiative.
Terrorists are those who betray worshippers in their places of worship, plant fear in their hearts and try to ignite religious conflicts in societies. Our condolences to the people of Sri Lanka, to the world and to everyone who works tirelessly towards tolerance and coexistence.
