This came when Sheikh Mohammed granted the Medal of Top Emiratis to 43 Emirati persons, who have had a head start in various educational, health, economic, military, sports and other fields in the country, in addition to a group of Emirati achievers in the fields of distinguished innovations, inventions and initiatives.

Speaking on the occasion, H.H. Sheikh Mohammed said that, "The late Sheikhs Zayed and Rashid were the first to state that they would do well not be satisfied without achieving first place and they noted that the UAE people love the first rank."
