"No matter how many buildings, foundations, schools and hospitals we build, or how many bridges we raise, all these are material entities. The real spirit behind the progress is the human spirit, the able man with his intellect and capabilities.

- Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Father of the Nation
In the 46 years of its existence, the UAE has nurtured the diversity of its expatriates with vigour, giving them a free environment in which to thrive and scale their heights of ambition. While the United Nations has 193 member nations, UAE surpasses that number with over 200 nationalities living in it in perfect harmony. Respect for each others cultural identity and the common cause of humaneness are among the defining features of the UAE, which has set an example of what it means to enable expatriates and citizens alike to be global citizens.
Tolerance is one of the cornerstones of UAE society and there is no better example of how integral this virtue is to the countrys ethos than the announcement of the Ministry of Tolerance by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in February this year.
Appointing Cabinet Minister Shaikha Lubna Al Qasimi as Minister of State for Tolerance, Shaikh Mohammad said the new position would have a person who will instil tolerance as a fundamental value of society.

Before this, the UAE also promulgated an Anti-Discriminatory Federal law which forbids citizens and residents alike to discriminate against anyone on the grounds of caste, creed, culture or religion.
