Mohammed bin Rashid is a pioneer extraordinaire: paper

In an editorial published this morning, an English-language daily has said that His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, is a pioneer extraordinaire who doesn’t just make promises, but he acts on his goals too. He has many distinguished achievements to his credit. He is the man behind building iconic landmarks such as the Burj Al Arab and the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa. He introduced the revolutionary driverless Dubai Metro. He is the proponent of annual fiestas for Dubai residents and tourists alike such as the Dubai Shopping Festival and Dubai Summer Surprises. He launched fun icy entertainment spots in the middle of hot desert terrain such as Ski Dubai. He has also been stoking, from time to time, intellectual debates at conferences graced by some of the world’s leading politicians, thinkers and motivational speakers, said the Sharjah-based newspaper, Dubai International Airport was the world’s busiest for international passenger traffic last year, stealing the thunder from London’s Heathrow Airport. Full-year passenger numbers for the Dubai International totalled $70.4 million, it said. The editorial added, “Terminal 3 airport is as swanky as swanky can get, with its state-of-the-art trappings and self check-in counters. It went on to say that these developments were further highlighted following the recent announcement by Sheikh Mohammed that Dubai is going to build the largest airport in the world. The Ruler of Dubai tweeted on Friday that Dubai was going to effect the biggest deal in history by buying planes worth US 100 billion. When officials briefed him on plans to enlarge Dubai airport, he told them he did not want an airport for Dubai but wanted Dubai to be the airport of the world, said the paper, before adding that “The Cassandras may be dismissive of the logic behind this humongous figure, but Sheikh Mohammed’s followers have immense faith in him. The theme, “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” for Expo 2020 Dubai appropriately fits the rapid developments of Dubai World Central (DWC) in elevating the emirate’s standing as an aviation and logistics hub and a centre of commerce, added the editorial. The aerotropolis provides a critical backdrop to Dubai’s bid for the World Expo 2020, and around 30 million travellers are estimated to pass through the passenger terminal at Al Maktoum International Airport by 2023, it said.
