In line with the ‘Spirit of the Union’ celebration launched by the Government of the UAE on the occasion of the 40th National Day, Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), the integrated free zone technology park, has adorned its headquarters in the UAE’s national colours to mark the occasion.
The Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) commenced its celebrations on November 1 organizing several activities within its premises. These activities kicked off with the display of the UAE flag on the wings of its headquarters. The community looks equally resplendent with the streets proudly decked in the tri-colours of the country. A daily laser show, beamed at the headquarters, lights up the skies after dark with the UAE flag colours, adding to the free zone’s overall festive ambience.
Additionally, a photo gallery on ‘UAE in the Past’, showcasing historical images and highlighting traditions, has been set up on the ground floor of DSOA headquarters. A number of tools, crafts, antiques, traditional and conventional weapons used by ancestors are also on display.
Adnan Juma Al Bahar, VP Marketing & Corporate Communications at Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority, said: “We are extremely proud of our achievements over the past 40 years. We owe our glorious history and our ability to dare to dream to our leaders, without their guidance and support it would have been impossible to gain the status we enjoy. We salute their visionary aptitude, determination and relentless work towards securing a quality lifestyle for all UAE citizens. The celebrations at DSO are a humble tribute to the milestone occasion of our country’s 40th National Day.”
