Devoted to the esteemed legacy of Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum and published in the year of the UAE’s Golden Jubilee, the book, titled, ’50U’, tells the story of the seven emirates in 50 portraits of individuals, vegetation and locations.
The book, launched in Alserkal Avenue in Dubai, is the brainchild of UAE businessman Yasser Bin Khediya. Together with his daughters Roadha and Khawla, and Dutch graphic designer and specialist bookmaker Irma Boom, they’ve created a publication that celebrates the UAE’s inspirational journey to develop into a sought-after world vacation destination.
Emarati Business Account
Emirates Islamic Bank has launched the ‘Emarati Business Account’ initiative, designed specifically to support the UAE’s national companies.
The new account builds on the bank’s ongoing commitment towards supporting the UAE’s SME sector, which represent 94 percent of the total companies and institutions operating in the country and contribute more than 50 percent to the country’s GDP.
The Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) sector is a key contributor to the national economy, and helps boost the UAE’s global competitiveness while contributing to increase the non-oil GDP and advancing economic diversification.
Commenting on the launch, Farid Al Mulla, Head of Consumer Banking and Wealth Management at Emirates Islamic, said, “As a leading Islamic bank in the region, we recognise the crucial role that the Emarati business community plays in driving economic growth in the UAE, and are committed to supporting their needs. We understand the unique requirements of this business segment and through our new Emarati Business Account, we would like to empower our UAE national clients and assist them through each part of their business journey.”
