Sheikh Khalifa Al-Nahyan is the president of one of the fastest-growing nations in the world. Under his leadership, the UAE has seen significant economic growth, and the renaming of the Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa is considered a symbol of Al-Nahyan’s financial power. He has made substantial donations to many health institutions around the world, and finances a major housing programme in the Gaza Strip. He has also inaugurated Warner Bros Plaza at Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, the first indoor Warner Bros themed amusement park as part of his continued drive to make the UAE a prime tourist destination.
