ABU DHABI, 28th August, 2022 (WAM) -- H.H. Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman, stated that the Emirati woman has proven to the world she is an icon for generous giving, which reflects the country's wise leadership’s investment in women's potential as a mother, wife, sister, partner in the development journey, the pulsing heart of the nation, and a source of positive citizenship.

Speaking on the occasion of Emirati Women's Day, which is celebrated on 28th August, Sheikh Humaid said the development of the nation's capabilities, particularly those of women, is the fruit of a forward-looking nation and a recognition of women and men participating side by side in the ongoing national development.
