Abu Dhabi Crown Prince named among Time’s 100 most influential people
28 Apr, 2019
Dubai: His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has been named among the '100 Most Influential People' of 2019 by Time magazine.
The list, which was revealed on Wednesday, chose the "influential people" under four categories: leaders, pioneers, artists, icons, and titans.
Geopolitical analyst Ryan Bohl was commissioned to write a piece about Shaikh Mohammad, and said: “[Shaikh Mohammad’s] military-first approach, which has earned the UAE the nickname of Little Sparta among some U.S. officials, carries costs born of blood in Yemen and reputation in Western capitals. But [Shaikh Mohammad] attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and he’s a long-term thinker; the firm belief that the benefits outweigh the costs compels him onward.
