UAE among best 50 nations in human development

posted on 11/10/2003: 679 views


New York - The United Arab Emirates has expressed satisfaction at being placed among the best 50 nations, which have achieved high standards of human and social development in the world according to the UN Human Development 2002 evaluation report. In a statement last night to the UN General Assembly's Third Committee on Social Affairs and Human Rights, Muna Falih Al Qahtani, member of the UAE delegation to the UN, said such an achievement was a result of the "sagacious national development policies pursued by the UAE towards attaining justice and social security."



She said her country has given priority to national programmes and incentives that focus on youth and their qualification in cultural, scientific, social and sports fields. Qahtani told the General Assembly's committee that the UAE government has already adopted laws that care for women and children, such as the Marriage Fund. The country, she said, is in the process of promulgating another personal law to regulate family ties. She underlined the importance of the role played by special care centres, which were formed to rehabilitate and facilitate participation of the disabled in various activities.
