On the occasion of Arabian Water Day 2021, Al Tayer said that Sheikh Zayed’s quality initiatives improved the lives of millions around the world. They also laid the foundation for the principles followed by the UAE’s wise leadership to consolidate the UAE’s stature as one of the most volunteering, and benevolent countries in the world.
