Dubai ‘a catalyst for positive change’

By Staff Writer


His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice- President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has said Dubai’s smart capitalism, will power and positive energy are helping to change people’s lives.

Writing in The Wall Street Journal, Sheikh Mohammed said while many consider the term “Dubai Inc” to be an apt label for the emirate, he prefers to call it “Catalyst Inc” because its ethos is about “creating connections with different cultures”.

Sheikh Mohammed also underlined that the “best opportunity for lasting social stability in the Middle East” remains the creation of a strong regional economy.

“The fundamental question I learned to always ask was: how can we serve as agents of positive change?” he wrote.

Sheikh Mohammed’s memoirs will be published later this year in English, the Journal also reported.
