Dubai, UAE: Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry marked the UAE’s 47th National Day with a special celebration held at its premises today, which included a wide variety of traditional, cultural and festive activities.

The event was attended by H.E. Majid Saif Al Ghurair, Chairman of Dubai Chamber, and H.E. Hamad Buamim, President and CEO of Dubai Chamber, as well as Chamber staff and customers.

The exterior façade of the Chamber’s building was draped with a large poster titled “This is Zayed, This is the UAE”, while offices were decorated with the national colours. Guests attending the event were treated to Emirati hospitality, traditional cuisine, and music.

H.E. Al Ghurair noted that the strong spirit of unity that the UAE was founded upon has been carried forward to this day, as the country remains a beacon of hope, peace, and prosperity.

“The UAE’s remarkable economic and social progress over the last 47 years is a reflection of the country’s wise leadership which has invested in the potential and happiness of its people,” said H.E. Al Ghurair, adding that Dubai Chamber has gone to great lengths to support the UAE’s Year of Zayed initiative and honour the legacy left by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Founding Father of the UAE.
