Another of Gates’s UAE contacts, another Abu Dhabi royal – this time the Deputy Prime Minister of the UAE. The pair met in April last year when Gates visited the UAE. Sheikh Hamdan welcomed Bill Gates and expressed his wish that Gates’s stay in the UAE would create the opportunity to exchange views and explore ways for building bridges of cooperation between Microsoft and public, as well as private, sector institutions in the UAE.
Sheikh Hamdan is the younger half brother of the President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Among other duties he is Chairman of the Emirates Camel Racing Federation, President of the UAE Football League, and President of Abu Dhabi University Board of Trustees.
