This year marks the 50th founding anniversary of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). To celebrate this golden jubilee, the President of the country, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, declared 2021 as the ‘Year of the 50th’.

Celebrating the year of the 50th
The “Year of the 50th” as declared by Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan specifically celebrates the significant milestone in UAE’s history, as it witnessed outstanding development in all regions, with a noble yet extraordinary journey in human and nation building.

Basically, United Arab Emirates (UAE), a nation shaped by values, sacrifice, and propelled by innovation and inclusiveness, was declared an independent, sovereign, and federal state on 2 December, 1971 and was established by its founding Sheikhs; UAE comprises seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, and Fujairah.

The September/October issue of PLEASURES Magazine is dedicated to celebrating this remarkable journey and incredible growth of the UAE and its people.

“Via these pages, we hope the world would learn more about the history of the United Arab Emirates and be inspired by its founding father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s tutelage and legacy of tolerance and understanding between cultures. Sheikh Nahyan’s work thrives everywhere as recorded in the prosperity of the nation, educational development and myriads of business opportunities, and above all, the sustainability of its diverse culture and spirit of brotherhood among all.
