The United Arab Emirates is celebrating its golden jubilee today, the 50th anniversary of the declaration of independence and the unification of the seven emirates.

UAE Statehood Day is celebrated every year in memory of December 2, 1971, when the UAE declared independence as a sovereign nation.

As announced by the UAE President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 2021 is known as ‘The Year of the 50th’. Commemorating 50 years since the founding of the UAE in 1971, it is a moment to reflect on the remarkable journey of its ‘Early Dreamers’ as the nation looks to the next 50 years with the same bold ambition.

An exotic and amazing country that today for many visitors is a combination of old architecture, replicas of famous world attractions, desert, turquoise seas and eastern mysteries is an irresistible destination to experience.

We are grateful for the selfless support and efforts of the UEA that have enabled Bosnia and Herzegovina to be part of world trends and to receive a unique opportunity to participate, cooperate and innovate at Expo 2020.

Congratulations to our friends on 50 years of independence and we wish them to continue building their dream!
