His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, affirmed that the reason why Burj Khalifa was named after His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, was because the Burj was necessary to be associated with the name of one of the greatest people.
Sheikh Mohammed said in a video on Instagram, with the hashtag #FlashesofLeadership, “When I was briefed on the plan of the project, which consisted of 80 floors in an area with small buildings of three or four floors, I told my team that this project does not embody my dreams, it is not the project we plan and want to implement.
“I pointed it out that I wanted to set up the largest man-made building in this place, including gardens, water, accommodation, and excellent markets.”
Sheikh Mohammed added: "Burj Khalifa is not just a tower, but a new city in the heart of the city, and when we completed the building, it was the tallest man-made building on earth.
“We decided that it must be linked to the name of one of the greatest people, so it was called ‘Burj Khalifa.’”
In February, Sheikh Mohammed said that it is not possible for him to agree to implement a project or embody an idea into reality if it does not draw his attention, or if he is not 100% convinced of it.
Sheikh Mohammed said in a video posted on Instagram under the hashtag #FlashesofLeadership, “When I talk about what our fathers did and reached and see our small role and what we have achieved, I feel enthusiastic… Follow-up and support is required to develop the country...”
Sheikh Mohammed said he does not work alone, but is part of a large work team including young people who do tremendous work.
“We have a vision. A project or idea is not implemented unless I am 100% convinced of it, and in case I am convinced, I do not stop.”
Sheikh Mohammed launched the hashtag #FlashesofLeadership on his Instagram account last January, to share part of his life and work experiences and leadership vision with the public.
Sheikh Mohammed said in a video with the hashtag on Instagram, #Flashes of Leadership, “You have to find the space in which you would like to move. Some people have limited vision, and work in a narrow space.
In his weekly tweet with the hashtag “#FlashesofLeadership,” the Dubai Ruler said, “If the needy comes to you, help him... And if the oppressed comes to you, support him... And if the owner of the idea comes to you, support him also… And if the world comes to you, listen to the world...”

The shooters claimed that the woman wanted to marry her cousin Waqas, brother of Abbas, who was living in Italy but her brother opposed it. According to the report, the brother wanted her sister to marry a well-educated person, but she refused.
Several infrastructure projects and emissions from nearby refineries were the possible reasons, said a government official who did not want to be named as he was not authorised to talk to the media.
"I think it's very exciting that the UAE, an OPEC member, is going to host COP28, and it's so important that you have an oil and gas producing nation step up and say we understand the challenge of the climate crisis,” Kerry told Reuters in an interview.
