ABU DHABI, 22nd November, 2015 (WAM) — H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in the Western Region and Chairman of Emirates Red Crescent (ERC), has said the UAE’s Higher Policy for Science, Technology and Innovation, launched by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, represents the country’s long term plan to ensure a decent living standard for citizens and expatriates alike.
He said in his statement on the launch of the UAE Innovation Week that the innovation policy, which was adopted at the national level, would have a positive impact on the UAE’s humanitarian work, which has become a milestone at the global level and a source of pride for all the citizens of the UAE.
Sheikh Hamdan said the wise leadership ensures that every time it is planning for the future using innovative and non-traditional tools, it does so by harnessing the forces of science, knowledge and technology to achieve maximum happiness and well-being of people.
He added that this noble endeavour is embodied in the humanitarian objectives of the ERC, noting that the programmes of the ERC have seen a qualitative shift in recent years at the regional and international levels, thanks to the support of the leadership.
