Korean TV interviews Nahyan

Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, has said that HH President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan has succeeded in building a modern state that invests in the development of human resources by providing them with free education and medical care. In an interview with "Heart to Heart” programme, one of the popular talk shows of the Korean Arirang TV, which will be broadcast nationwide during the prime time of April 15, he said that the official visit to Korea of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, stands as a testimony of the close relations between Korea and UAE and, at the same time, aims at enhancing bilateral relations in the areas of economy, trade, IT and politics.

The UAE official said: "We are living in an era of globalisation, which necessitates that we have to interact and benefit from each other in order to gain experience and knowledge.” He noted that due to the sagacious policies of Sheikh Zayed, the UAE has become oasis of stability, tranquillity, and transparency in the Middle East, which helped making it a basis for international conference, exhibition and international trade. Sheikh Nahyan said in the view of the UAE leaders education is not considered as part of the service but an investment for the future. He added that the UAE enjoys one of the highest rates of enrolment in higher education.

Asked on the growing number of the Internet users in the UAE, the Minister said his country is placed along with the Scandinavian countries and outpaces other European states as far as Internet surfing is concerned. On the role of women, he noted that Sheikh Zayed strongly believes that the society cannot be developed while half of it is paralysed or stagnated. "That is why through his policies and support and the active role of Sheikha Fatima, the President's wife and Chairperson of the UAE General Women's Union, UAE women have made great progress and that two thirds of the UAE university students are women”, he told his interviewer. "We have established universities exclusively for women because of the great demand for education among the UAE girls,” he said.

The Minister said: "We take pride in this great achievement and commitment from our President.” Sheikh Nahyan opined that the visit of Sheikh Hamdan to South Korea, and the series of meetings his accompanying delegation with high level government and business officials, would further strengthen relations between the two countries and open new avenues of cooperation in joint ventures and investment opportunities in both countries.
