Despite all the challenges the UAE faced this year, the country emerged stronger and more resilient than ever. 

This year, according to the data released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC), the country was able to help 120 countries in fighting the pandemic. 

“Next year will be a year of progress and optimism,” it added. 

At the onset of the pandemic, it has evacuated its citizens from 61 countries. 

The government of UAE did not just look after its own, but it also helped thousands of third-country nationals and residents stranded by the pandemic and deliver them back safely to their homes and families. 

More than 27,000 Filipinos stranded across the globe have been safely returned home on Emirates flight. 

Philippine Ambassador to the UAE Hjayceelyn Quintana expressed her gratitude towards the airline. 

Meanwhile, other diplomats have also expressed their gratitude to the home country. 

Former French Ambassador to the UAE Ludovic Pouille said on April 1 that he is proud of the embassy and consulate team that worked day and night to enable hundreds of French citizens to return to France. 

“Many thanks also to the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation as well as Dubai International Airport for their support,”
