They continue to prove their ability to actively contribute to the country’s social and economic development locally, regionally and internationally.  The UAE’s leadership has also ensured Emirati women’s active presence in society’s different aspects which has ultimately seen them become the foundation for many of the successes that the country is now witnessing.

That these young women have graduated through this intensive course sets an example for future generations and shines a light on the career opportunities available in the maritime industry.”
