His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Monday met young national leaders who graduated from the Mohammad Bin Rashid Centre for Leadership Development.
"The UAE's economy is robust and is based on solid foundations and a long-term vision," said Shaikh Mohammad to the young leaders.
"That is why we, the leadership and the government, are not worried about the future of our national economy. We rely on the arms and minds of the [national] youth to further strengthen it," he said during the meeting at Qasr Al Bahar in Dubai.
The young Emiratis said they were proud of the country's leaders who facilitate education and training, jobs and dignified living for them.
Shaikh Mohammad welcomed the young leaders and expressed his happiness at meeting what he described as the nerve centre of the nation and the cornerstone of the nation's building, development and future.
The meeting was attended by Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and Shaikh Maktoum Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, and other Shaikhs and senior officials.
Shaikh Mohammad exchanged talks with the young leaders over a host of issues related to the nation's future and ways of serving it at all levels.
He told them that he pays special attention and personally follows up on matters related to their work, as well as their social and financial stability.
