We are living in a world that rejects all forms of discrimination, and promotes intellectual, social and cultural diversity, says Dr Hamad bin Sheikh Ahmed Al Shaibani


Dubai, United Arab Emirates - October 09, 2019:     Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation, Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai and Emirates Real Estate Solutions are the main sponsors of the upcoming World Tolerance Summit, which will be held at Madinat Jumeirah Conference & Events Centre on 13-14 November under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
International Institute for Tolerance (IIT) in Dubai, one of the initiatives of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Foundation, is the organiser of the two-day summit themed ‘Tolerance in Multiculturalism: Achieving the Social, Economic and Humane Benefits of a Tolerant World.'

Ministries, government and private entities support major events and initiatives to strengthen their presence in community initiatives as part of their national responsibility and support for community development initiatives.

Dr Hamad bin Sheikh Ahmed Al Shaibani, Managing Director of the IIT, Chairman of the Higher Committee of the Summit Sponsors, said that the summit demonstrates the UAE's commitment to the values represented by the culture of dialogue and acceptance, which is in accordance with the principles of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who founded the nation.

Al Shaibani added: 'The second edition of WTS is based on the outcome of the first summit (held last year), which stressed the need to have joint global efforts to promote the values of tolerance and brotherhood among communities. We are living in a world that rejects all forms of discrimination, and promotes intellectual, social and cultural diversity.”

Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Chairman of Emirates Real Estate Solutions, said: “Since its inception, the UAE has provided a true translation of the values of tolerance and openness, which has contributed to the creation of a rich cultural environment that promotes harmony.

“Values of respect and equality derived from Shari'a laws and authentic Arab customs have helped create this ideal climate in a country like the UAE which ensures tolerance, and where everyone contributes to the progress and prosperity of the society.”

Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Roads and Transport Authority, said, “Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Directors of RTA, said: 'Tolerance has become an integral part of the UAE society. At RTA, we are committed to making a significant difference in the community and we support all social and cultural programmes and initiatives aimed at spreading the principles of Islam, based on tolerance, compassion and traditional values.”

The people of the UAE have benefited from the values established by the founding fathers under the leadership of the late Sheikh Zayed. The UAE offers one of the finest stories of tolerance in human history despite being home to millions of people from different religions, creed, ethnicities and race.

The two-day global summit will be attended by government officials, thinktanks, intellectuals, influencers, representatives of international organisations, diplomats, as well as student community to share their knowledge and experiences that will promote and consolidate the values and principles of tolerance in communities.
