At the core of Dubai
Hopes and aspirations sum up the UAE residents' thoughts
It is truly inspiring to see how in just 48 years, the UAE has become one of the most powerful nations in the world, striving for excellence in every way, and how next year, it plans not only to rejoice in its successes (with Expo 2020 and its upcoming Golden Jubilee), but prepare itself for the next 50 years - a period of innovation and change.
As the UAE moves to the next stage of its journey- to a post-oil economy, built on sustainable energy and pioneering technology, we are sure to be heading towards a better, brighter future.
The coming year holds a lot of promise for the UAE, with 16 new attractions opening up next year, aside from the much-awaited Expo 2020 event. As we stand on the threshold of a world of promise, we remember the wisdom of the great rulers of this country, and ready ourselves for what's to come.

The UAE is a booming economy, and with Expo 2020 almost upon us, Dubai is in the spotlight. Once the expo has passed, Dubai will still remain more relevant than ever as a tourist destination, as the city has become more family-friendly than ever, with theme parks, malls and other areas catering to family life. In the next 10 years, I see Dubai as becoming an ideal destination for families around the world.
10 years from now, I can see Dubai turning into one of the smartest and digitalised cities in the world, where AI (artificial intelligence) and automation becomes more widespread. In any case, Dubai will still be 10 years ahead from the rest of the world.
I am a resident of Dubai, and I feel that this city is one of the safest cities that I've been to. In fact, the UAE has been developing for our good every single day. The government has been developing new ideas, different opportunities, and new way of living for every resident in this country. I feel that the government treats and provides every person with equality. Whenever I think about the future of the UAE, I feel that this country will be one of the most popular residential countries, and will attract a large number of tourists.
Spending at least 27 years in this country has made me realise that no matter how many ups and downs you go through, you just need to keep going on and believe in the leader's vision as he wouldn't his people down. Dubai is the fastest developing country in the world as of for now.I feel that the UAE lives with one motto, which is "Never give up". So, I feel that it's better to work harder, as with the lifestyle over here and the security of our families are assured.
