'Tolerance in the UAE' Workshop
Abu Dhabi, November 13, 2017: H.E. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Cabinet Member and the Minister of State for Tolerance, delivered the opening remarks at the two-day 'Tolerance in the UAE' workshop organized by the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute.
In his opening remarks, HE Sheikh Nahyan said, "This conference provides an excellent opportunity for us to reflect upon the journey of the United Arab Emirates, one of the most ethnically and religiously diverse countries in the world, but, at the same time, one of the most peaceful, harmonious and prosperous places on earth. Although the UAE is a young country, it nevertheless has an impressive history of tolerance. Tolerance is the joint responsibility of everyone in the country, and conferences like this help remind us of our united purpose in promoting tolerance. I congratulate NYU Abu Dhabi for holding this important conference that will provide new insights into the UAE's contributions to peace, harmony and prosperity."
