The Centre of Information Affairs has published the second volume of the book "The Leader: Achievements and Accomplishments," which documents some of the efforts, achievements, and meetings of the President HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, from October 1, 2007 to the end of July 2008. It is a supplement to the first volume which provides illumination on some important aspects of the march of development and progress, under Khalifa's leadership.

The book points out that the UAE under its judicious leadership, has progressed and developed thanks to the firm belief, and moral values and traditions of its authentic people, and achieved an economic and human miracle, which has elevated it, in the span of four decades, to the ranks of civilized nations.

It highlights Sheikh Khalifa's efforts towards leading his people to progress and prosperity in all fields and determination to maintain these achievements.

The book quotes Sheikh Khalifa as saying, "what fruits and welfare we have reaped throughout the past years, make us more certain and confident about the capacity of our people to carry the strategies and plans to their intended goals and objectives." In reference to the achievements accomplished in the UAE, he also added, "our people have managed in 36 years to bring about achievements that went beyond conception and imagination: a model experience of federation, an outstanding human development, a modern infrastructure, basic modern services, great economic successes, educated man, prosperity, well-being, and security."

It also sheds light on some measures ordered by Sheikh Khalifa to improve the quality of life for citizens, including decrees stipulating rise in salaries for employees, civil and military, in the federal government and Abu Dhabi emirate. This is in addition to other orders and decrees establishing services and investment institutions and enterprises, which all bode well for the UAE society in the present and future.

The book exhibits many of Sheikh Khalifa field visits and tours to various places in the country to see on the ground the needs of people, citing his recent visit to western region in July 2008, during which he said, "the state will spare no effort to provide all requirements necessary to enable the citizen to serve his country in a way that suits the economic and social development already achieved.

The book tackles the UAE international cooperation at regional and global levels, highlighting Khalifa's meetings, visits, and consultations with the heads of states and governments and senior officials in the world and the region, especially his meetings and consultations with his brothers the leaders of the GCC countries. The book also documents UAE President's meetings with the leaders of friendly foreign countries, including US president George W. Bush; French president Nicolas Sarkozy, and His Majesty Juan Carlos I, King of Spain. It also touches Sheikh Khalifa's stances over the Arab issues, particularly those of Palestine, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, and Iraq. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
