Ladies and Gentleman, As what we all has seen to the world today on the era of economic transformation to China today, China transforming as Liberal Economic country in 1978 and by Just in 30 years , there are now the world no 3 economic Power, according to IMF and World Bank report this early of 2009 and Now there event financing the United States of America with more then, USD 200 Billion, Europe, Britain and event the World Bank IMF for more the USD 800 Billion financing to the crisis. Just imagine ‘How and Why’ they are growing so fast ??? The answer is they have the best Strategic and Practical Formula. Then India has transformed their country into Liberal Economic Policy in 1979, within 30 year and now there are no 6 economic Power in the world . d How and Why???.. the answer is there have the best Strategic and Practical Formula is the answer.
And Middle East Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the country just transformation their country into Liberal Economic Policy in 1990 and Picking Up high times of the development in year of 2002 and now the Country is the upcoming developing country and nation as what there are today and their Vision is extended to 2020 instated of original plan of 2015, no dough due to the world economic crisis has impact and slowing down the progress of the development in Dubai.

My Leadership is optimistic and believed that no miracle or no magic that can transform a country so easy success , but if we just an audience to watching the successful country transformation and joy with others country success, can we become a developing country like them? Or will we continue our tradition of “Wait and See Culture”, and our low quality of living standard, live in poverty life in many generation of our people’s , long outstanding domestic issues of majority of my fellow citizen, without any solution and strategies to improvement?
