As the search for the next Youth Minister continues, UAE leaders have once again demonstrated how much they value the country’s young men and women and their contributions to the nation’s development.

On Sunday, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, posted on social media inviting Emiratis to apply to become the country’s Minister of Youth.

This is not the first time that leaders have published open calls for important positions. In 2016, a similar call to universities resulted in the country appointing Shamma Al Mazrui Minister of State for Youth Affairs when she was just 22 years old, making her the youngest minister in the world.

The President of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has also spoken at length about the important role of youth in the future of the country. His father, the founding father of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and his brother, the late President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, also considered the young men as the drivers of the future.

Here are ten times when UAE leaders pinned their hopes on the country’s youth:

1. “The majority of our nation is made up of our youth: our future is in your hands. We are a young country, proud of our youth,” – Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

2. “It is my duty as a leader of the youth of this country to encourage them to work and strive to raise their own standards and be of service to the country. The individual who is healthy and of sound mind and body, but whoever does not work commits a crime against oneself and against society” – Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan

3. “Young people must be equipped with science and knowledge, as they are the only, constant and dominant weapons in this life”, – Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

4. “We trust in the role of the ambitious youth of the UAE and believe in their capabilities in creating the present and future of the country. We always aim to qualify, motivate and empower them to take up the flag of the nation and carry it to our level supreme glory.” – Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan

5. “You are the real wealth, not the 3 million barrels of oil. You are the future of this nation’s safety and security network. We are in good condition now, but we want to set the vision for the next 50 years” . Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan

6. “I am sure, from what I have witnessed in my simple interaction with brilliant minds and hopeful, optimistic faces, that we are betting on the right people and the right generation for the future of the UAE.” Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan

7. The youth of the UAE are the fuel of our uprising. Youth is the guarantee of our future, the protector of our home. Whoever keeps them close is the winner,” Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

8. “Young people are the true wealth of the nation,” he stated. “Nations do not grow in stature by desire, but by hard-won achievement.” Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan

9. “We strongly support our young people and will empower them to achieve the highest levels of innovation and creativity in all fields.” Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

10. “The youth of the UAE inspire us more every day through their continued success in all fields,” Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan
