said, at the award ceremony , “Each year’s ceremony has had a theme but none so appropriate as this year’s theme—'Leadership Legacies: Honoring the Past and Shaping the Future.' The leadership legacy that the United Arab Emirates has been honouring this year is that of our nation’s founder, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan… I have come to favour Sheikh Zayed’s active support of (and I quote his words) 'tolerance, compassion, and dialogue.' Those words convey the spirit that he infused in our nation… We are all indebted to the UAE Ministry of Economy for their generous and reliable support of ABLF. Our thanks goes to Malini Menon and her colleagues at IEDEA for shaping this splendid opportunity to exchange ideas and to honor outstanding achievements of 17 phenomenal men and women. They are perfect representatives of the even larger group of leaders who are propelling private and public enterprises to great successes in the countries of Asia and its neighbors."
