In the video, posted on Twitter, Sheikh Saud addressed his “brothers and sisters” and welcomed them back to work.
The emirate has been lifting restrictions gradually over the last month, as the UAE works to resume regular operations in the wake of restrictions due to Covid-19.
“This was a new experience for the UAE. The pandemic swept the earth, sparing no land, but, praise God, with His help and your amazing efforts, we are overcoming this adversity,” said the ruler.
“This is also thanks to the UAE’s adoption of the latest technology and its investment in human capital,” he added.
Sheikh Saud called on all employees to “show their true spirit” by adhering to health and safety guidelines as they returned to work.
“Our success depends on each of you. So, I urge you all to persevere,” he said, emphasising the emirate’s collective responsibility to build a bright future.
The ruler commended the “unity and love” witnessed over the last few months – not only from Emiratis, but expat residents of the UAE too. “We have seen their love and solidarity with the UAE,” he said.
He also thanked the healthcare sector for their dedication and sacrifice. “We are indebted to you for your efforts and care of every one of us,” he said.
Sheikh Saud ended the video with his blessings and a hope for peace and goodwill in the world.
