DIFC Brings UAE National Day Celebrations to its CommunityPress Release28 Nov 2018
UAE, Dubai, 28 November 2018: Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) celebrated today the UAE’s 47th National Day, together with members from its vibrant community of close to 23,000 professionals, with activations across the Centre. The celebrations culminated in a lively ceremony of cultural activities and performances that took place against the backdrop of the iconic Gate Building.
Commenting on the occasion, His Excellency Essa Kazim, Governor of DIFC, said: “Unity, diversity and openness to the world are the true values that define the fabric of the Emirati society. Guided by these values, we have built the vibrant community of DIFC, creating a genuine extension to what the UAE community stands for. The UAE’s 47th National Day is a particularly special occasion because it falls during the Year of Zayed – honouring our founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who instilled these values in everyone who calls the UAE home. The vision of our leadership will continue to guide our priorities and contribution to the UAE’s future and aspirations for national prosperity.”
The event was brought to the DIFC community in partnership with DIFC Authority, Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA), and Nasdaq Dubai. Nasdaq Dubai also partnered with DIFC Authority to run a dedicated art competition, inviting applicants to capture the spirit of the UAE National Day through their artwork. The soon to be announced winner of the competition will showcase their piece at the Nasdaq offices in New York for one month.
