Mohammad A. Baker, Deputy Chairman and CEO, GMG:

With a clear direction set out by the founding fathers of the nation, fifty years on the UAE is a country that is celebrated worldwide for its diversity, tolerance, and opportunity. These attributes and others have made the UAE a global hub for the exchange of ideas and knowledge in an increasingly connected world. Despite these many achievements, the UAE is a nation with its vision set on the future. Ambitious sustainable development goals are complemented by a commitment to nurturing happiness and positive lifestyles throughout the society.

In many ways, our success at GMG mirrors that of the UAE. Just as the nation has been transformed over the past 50 years from humble beginnings to a global trade and economic hub, our company has witnessed radical change, expanding from a single butcher’s shop into a global well-being company.

Today, GMG is proud to support the UAE’s boundless entrepreneurial ambition. Like the UAE, we are always pushing to achieve more and are always looking to do what is next. Our investments aimed at improving people’s lives through active living, nutritious food, and good health are a strategic move to support the UAE’s future vision and add value to an increasingly diversified UAE economy.

Geoffrey Alphonso, CEO of Alef Education

“This year’s National Day marks a special occasion for the UAE as it celebrates its Golden Jubilee. Highlighting five decades of remarkable progress, this occasion is a testament to the country’s longstanding record of success and achievements.

The UAE has made great strides in advancing the education sector, recognizing the significant role that it plays in creating a knowledge-driven economy. Witnessing spectacular achievements in the past five decades, the UAE government has set out several initiatives and plans, such as UAE Centennial Plan 2071, that aim to provide a world-class education system and equip future generations with the necessary technical and practical skills that will enable them to make positive contributions to Emirati society and the global community

At Alef Education, we are proud of being a homegrown, leading global education technology provider that empowers 21st-century learning. Our efforts contribute to the UAE Centennial 2071 plan by delivering an exceptional learning experience that enables students to gain crucial skills for their future careers.

Looking ahead to the next 50 years, we remain committed to providing personalized and engaging learning experiences for 21st century learners, contributing to the development of a high-quality education system in the UAE that nurtures talents and ensures competitiveness and innovation.”
