The UAE Societal Values Survey is in line with the main objective of Watani Programme which is to enhance community integration and create harmony between the various segments of the UAE society. There are a lot of common values that both UAE nationals and expatriates share with each other, and these values have contributed much to create the UAE success story."

The survey will also contribute to the creation of indicators of reference which will be useful in social development," he concluded.
