H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister, Chairman of the Emirates Foundation, has stressed the significance of social investment in youth energy by encouraging more national companies and corporations to provide opportunities to develop Emirati youth's capabilities, and hone their skills to participate fully in the nation-building.

He called for encouraging the culture of giving, not only in the private sector but also among various sections of society, especially the youth, adding that the culture of giving or philanthropy "is an important component of the Emirati culture outlined by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan." Speaking at the Emirates Foundation's Board of Directors meeting yesterday, Sheikh Abdullah urged the private sector to play more effective role in backing the government's efforts to develop the youth talents. He stressed the need for investing funds allocated for social welfare effectively to achieve satisfactory results.

The meeting was held in cooperation with the Dubai Economic Council at the Conrad Hotel Dubai in the presence of a number of Sheikhs and elite representing various private sector companies. Among others present were H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Emirates Group, Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid Al Qasimi, Minister of International Cooperation and Development (MICAD) and President of the Zayed University, Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Transport Department, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority and Managing Director of the Emirates Foundation's Board, Juma Al Majid, Chairman of the Dubai Economic Council, Hani Al Hamili, Secretary-General of the Dubai Economic Council and other senior officials.

Sheikh Abdullah commended the vital role of the Emirates Foundation in building an enlightened and educated generation to participate in the U.A.E.'s economic development process. "The real beginning to achieve this strategic objective is to adopt new traditions that assert serious work, innovation, high sense of responsibility among the youth whether at work places or in the community." On her part, Mohanna Al Muhairi, Chief Operating Officer at the Emirates Foundation, said the foundation devotes a significant part of its capabilities to build long-term partnerships with a number of companies and corporations in the private sector, especially in the field of corporate social responsibility, adding that it invests in programmes and projects designed to develop young people and realise their full potential.

The Emirates Foundation is an independent philanthropic organisation set up by the government of Abu Dhabi to facilitate public-private sector funded initiatives to ensure welfare of people across the U.A.E..
