Former U.S President Bill Clinton hailed the progress made by the United Arab Emirates on protecting the rights of expatriate workers, empowering women as well as on clean energy and environmental protection.

Speaking on the situation in the Middle East in a interview with ABC News on April 18th, the current situation in the Middle East, Clinton said the UAE "is the only the only country with huge amounts of imported workers that's actually passed legislation to give these immigrant workers a better deal in the Middle East." "They've got women in the government. They have a joint public-private decision making process," the former U.S president added.

Clinton also noted the UAE's successful bid to host the headquarters of the International Renewable Energy Agency, or IRENA, in Abu Dhabi and the emirate's plans to build Masdar City, the world's first carbon neutral city.

"UAE wins the international competition for the clean energy agency. And they're going to build a carbon neutral city in the UAE," he said. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
