Dubai, UAE: The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry has announced the release of a new book entitled “Zayed: Life of a Great Leader” to commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan on May 6th 2018.
The book, available in English and Arabic, is published by the Motivate Books, part of the Motivate Media Group.
“Zayed: Life of a Great Leader” recounts Sheikh Zayed’s life and the many facets of his personality, and traces the story from his early life in Al Ain to his astounding vision that guides the UAE to this day.
