The story of Burj Dubai becoming Burj Khalifa, what was the relationship with the President of the UAE?

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has passed away. He breathed his last at the age of 73. His death has caused a wave of mourning across the world and a period of 40 days of mourning has been declared in the United Arab Emirates. He had a long political career and also helped Dubai in difficult times.

Although President Sheikh Khalifa has not been active in politics for many years, most of his responsibilities are being handled by his brother Mohamed bin Zayed. But from time to time Sheikh Khalifa made his presence felt. The same thing happened in 2009, when the world economy slowed down. The economy of the UAE collapsed. Dubai was still in financial trouble at that time. In such a situation, the UAE saved Dubai from becoming a defaulter by offering a bailout package of $ 20 billion.

With that help, Dubai was able to re-emerge by renaming Burj Dubai as Burj Khalifa. In doing so, he paid tribute to Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. In his view, the Khalifa’s leadership and financial support saved Dubai from that difficult time.

If we talk about Sheikh Khalifa’s personal life, then he was born in the year 1948. He was the second President of the United Arab Emirates and the 16th Ruler of Abu Dhabi. Sheikh Khalifa was the eldest son of his father, Sheikh Zayed. After the sheikh became president, the federal government and the government of Abu Dhabi were reorganized.

Now that they are not in this world, the question arises as to how much wealth they have. No clear data has been released, but according to The Sun, he has assets worth Rs 113 lakh crore. At the same time, no announcement has been made about who will be his next officer, but Mohamed bin Zayed is said to be the frontrunner.
