In his latest post, to celebrate the UAE’s 46th National Day, the Crown Prince discussed how the UAE had emerged as a global model for development, a platform for testing future technologies and a force for shaping the future. He also touched upon the unlimited potential of the youth as the driving force for the ‘UAE of the Future’. 
 
Since expanding his already active social presence and joining the platform in April this year to communicate with the public and keep them updated with projects and initiatives, Sheikh Hamdan has achieved a remarkable increase in followers.
