Embassy of Switzerland to the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain
Welcome to the 1st of August in Abu Dhabi
The 1st of August is approaching and with it a welcome occasion for us to celebrate our beloved home country. This is an ideal time for family and friends, for community and unity, for sharing anecdotes and culinary experiences, for old traditions and new ideas.
As the circumstances still don’t allow for us all to meet physically, we decided once again to offer a platform for gathering online and even expanded on last year’s successful initiative. Thank you for visiting this website and joining us in our celebration of Switzerland. We have some highlights from our past year to share with you.
In the UAE, we are gradually stepping out of this devastating pandemic, hereby entering a new phase in the spirit of togetherness. With the world slowly opening up and Expo 2020 Dubai just around the corner many exciting moments that will definitely warrant celebration lie ahead.
Before we plunge into this new and exciting adventure, celebrating the 1st of August is something dear to my heart.
I wish you all a wonderful 1st of August!
