US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has commended the development of higher education in the UAE, and the prominent role that local women play in this vital sector. According to her, local women possess high levels of confidence, openness and ability to communicate with others.

Rice recently met with a group of female students from UAE University, Zayed University and the Higher Colleges of Technology in the presence of Dr. Tayeb Kamali, VC of the Higher Colleges of Technology, and Michele Sison, US Ambassador to the UAE.

During the meeting, Rice gave an overview of her academic career, highlighting the role that her university played in building and honing her personality, and her career in the public sector, culminating in her appointment as Secretary of State. She also discussed the students' role in steering development in the country.

The participating students enjoyed the opportunity to share opinions with Secretary Rice. They emphasized the importance of dialogue in reinforcing cooperation between the two countries and highlighted the special status of local women in the UAE and the encouragement they receive to become effective partners in the community.
