Dr Gargash said the UAE remains a regional and global business center and a preferred place for young people to live, work and achieve ambitions.
A year has passed since the vicious terrorist attack on civilian facilities in the UAE, and the nation is more powerful and invincible and more determined to continue its development path, said Dr. Anwar Gargash, Diplomatic Adviser to the UAE President.
Dr Gargash was speaking about the blasts in Abu Dhabi on January 17 last year, which left three civilians dead and six injured.
The attacks on an oil distribution plant in Mussaffah were condemned by world leaders. Several further attempted rocket and drone strikes were also intercepted.
“They wanted to shake confidence in our country, but it is stronger than any terrorist threat, proud of the determination of its leadership and people and its capabilities to protect its gains and achievements and our national cohesion,” Dr Gargash posted on twitter.
He said the UAE remains a regional and global business center and a preferred place for young people to live, work and achieve ambitions.
“The UAE is more attractive and vibrant, a regional and global business center, an economy exceeding half a trillion dollars, a global center for innovation and investment, a preferred place for young people to live, work and achieve ambitions, and a source of inspiration for many looking for security, safety, opportunities for growth, development and a decent life.”
Dr Gargash said in the past year, the UAE has continued its regional and global leadership role.
“In general, the UAE is more influential and plays a balanced role through its balanced policy and wide network of relations. Our leadership’s vision for the future is ambitious and enlightened to dedicate the UAE’s position as a country of safety and business and a partner for brothers and friends in building a more stable and prosperous region,” he said.
A year has passed, and terrorism has only increased us in strength and honour, he added.
