German magazine DiscoverME in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut in Abu Dhabi have published a special issue “YEAR OF ZAYED” dedicated to the German-Emirati relations, with a focus on the lifetime and governance of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. 

The bilingual publication (Arabic/German) documents the development of the close and friendly relationship between the United Arab Emirates and Germany and illustrates the efforts of the German community in the areas of business, development, education, society and culture to foster a reliable and fructuous relationship between the two countries.
The German Embassy, the German Emirati Joint Council for Industry and Commerce (AHK) and members of the German community as well as longstanding friends of the UAE contribute to the magazine with their recollections of Sheikh Zayed. Amongst the authors are Abu Dhabi-based historian Dr. Frauke Heard-Bey; director of the Abu Dhabi Falcon Clinic, Dr. Margit Mueller; publisher and expert on Arabian horses, Dr. W. Georg Olms and many more. German companies with extensive experience and partnerships in the region such as Siemens, Bosch, Daimler and Deutsche Bank demonstrate their relationship to the UAE, both visually and text-based.
The YEAR OF ZAYED Special Issue is complimentary and available at the Goethe-Institut.
