Members of the Federal National Council (FNC) have welcomed the new law amendments granting Emirati citizenship to select investors, specialised talents and professionals.
They stressed that besides promoting the nation’s economic growth and development, this is a clear indication that the UAE is a country of dreams.
FNC member Sara Mohammed Falaknaz said: “This is a great milestone. It will give hope to people in various fields to create a better future for them and their families, and to realise their aspirations.
“These law amendments, which have come after half a century since the formation of the UAE, also contribute to the stability of the minds that have resided in the country for many years and have all the love and loyalty to this great nation.”
With these amendments, the UAE gives a “golden opportunity” to those with “enlightened minds aspiring to settle in the homeland of success”. It also gives them a bigger “opportunity for creativity and innovation in various fields”, she added.
FNC member Dhirar Belhoul Al Falasi said the law amendments are a new step towards the future of the country.
“These legal amendments … indicate … the vision of the wise leadership of the UAE. Their decisions are based on national interests and to support the marvelous civilised development that the country is pursuing.
“The law amendments prove once again the correctness of the approach followed by the UAE, which always emphasises the importance of investing in people, stimulating human energies, and empowering all members of the Emirati society in all its classes and spectrums to continue the process of growth and development.”
With political and economic stability, the UAE has become home to millions of people, especially those with great talents and bright minds.
“The leaders have realised the importance of providing the appropriate environment for creativity and excellence, creating successful experiences that are reliable and capable of supporting the Emirati civilisation project,” said Al Falasi.
