The Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Elders Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam has affirmed that promoting the values of tolerance and coexistence is a fundamental pillar in supporting sustainable economic growth and encouraging investment locally and internationally.
He also pointed out that the UAE, under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, represents an inspiring global model of tolerance and coexistence, which has, in turn, transformed it into an attractive environment for international investment and a supporter of local and global economic growth.

Judge Abdelsalam added that the conference, which is held in partnership between the UAE’s Ministry of Tolerance and Coexistence and the Muslim Council of Elders, with participation and support from Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, aims to enhance international efforts towards adopting government policies that support humane values.
