Thursday, 19 October 2017, UAE: Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, HH Amir Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Amir of Dubai, announced a cabinet reshuffled, wherein the unique Ministry of Tolerance went to HE Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, hither to Minister of Culture, Youth and Social Development. He replaces HE Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid Al Qasimi, who recently wrote for Diplomat Magazine (http://www.diplomatmagazine.nl/2017/08/05/tolerance-a-fundamental-part-of-the-united-arab-emirates/).

Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan’s reputation as a bridge and dialogue-builder as well as a defender of cultural heritage makes him a more than suitable person to head the Ministry of Tolerance.

A surprise appointment was that of HE Omar bin Sultan Al Olama as the country’s (and in fact the world’s) first Minister for Artificial Intelligence. Previously the 27 years old held the office of Deputy Director for the Future Department at the Prime Minister’s Office.
