Crisis heralds success: Shaikh Mohammed (Wam) / 21 April 2013 His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Saturday received a group of young investors working under the international Zurich-based Young Investors Organisation. He welcomed the group to the UAE and expressed pride in their choice of the country and Dubai as the favourable destination for exploring the potentials and opportunities for investment, as well as the facilities provided by the government to ensure the success and feasibility of all foreign investments. Shaikh Mohammed received on Saturday an ambitious group of young investors working under the international Zurich-based Young Investors Organisation.—Wam The meeting at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) with the 36 visiting young investors, who will hold a forthcoming three-day forum in Dubai, was attended by Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and President of DIFC. “Dubai is pleased to welcome ambitious young investors who are looking for a safe place to settle down, live, invest and achieve personal goals and to contribute to the economic growth of the country they invest in,” Shaikh Mohammed said.  Courtesy: The people of the UAE are educated and have long experience in trade, investment and innovation, he said. “Dubai is a model as it could overcome the consequences of the global financial crisis by its determination, planning, realistic vision and serious work. The global financial crisis was the major challenge facing us. We by nature love challenges because we are the people of the desert, an environment which was in the past so harsh. From the Arabian desert, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was able to spread the heavenly message of Islam throughout the world reaching remote countries such as China. As such, that was a difficult challenge the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) managed to overcome and spread Islam.” “Creativity and success are born from crisis and hard times. So far, we achieved 10 per cent of our ambitions. All the human achievements you see now have not achieved what we aspire for: being number one globally,” Shaikh Mohammed said. “We learn from our mistakes. We all make mistakes because we work and because we are humans. Those who do not work will not make mistakes. But the biggest mistake is not to learn from your mistakes and not to rise again stronger and more determined to reach your goal. You can achieve that if you have a clear and farsighted future vision,” he added. “Here is my advice to you: be optimistic all the time, wake up every morning with positive energy inside you and a smile on your face and I can guarantee you a day full of success, happiness and hope,” he told the young investors. Also present at the meeting were the Director of Dubai Ruler’s Court, Mohammed Ibrahim Al Shebani, the Director General Of Dubai’s Protocol Department, Khalifa Saeed Sulaiman, the Director General of Dubai’s Department of Economic Development (DED), Sami Al Qamzi, and the CEO of DED’s Foreign Investment Office, Fahad Al Gergawi. Al Gergawi briefed Shaikh Mohammed on the organisation’s forum in Dubai which will see discussions on sustainable solutions for sectors such as energy, transport, construction and management. It will also shed light on doing business in the UAE and the Middle East and the success of companies operating and expanding in Dubai. Taylor Scott International
