"Many leaders promise, we deliver." – His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
"If we, 15 years ago, told a prudent man that we were going to develop tourism in Dubai, he would lie down on the ground laughing at the idea… now we plan to raise the number to 15,000,000 tourists… and nobody laughs.
"Why? Because people know that when we tell them we are doing something, we will do it, God willing. And meanwhile, they wait for us to explain how we are going to do so."
These words published by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in his book My Vision - Challenges in the Race for Excellence, came barely four months after he ascended to power on January 4, 2006.
The idea of this project came from the picture which was taken in early 90s by my father (Ibrahim Allouz), which was taken from the rooftop of our house in Dubai, where I have decided to taken a picture for the same view to show the change! This is an on-going project and more photos will be added in the future.
