The Swiss Ambassador Maya Tissafi attended the Swiss National Day celebration that was organized by the Swiss Business Council Dubai on the 1st of August. In her welcome adress, the Ambassador stated that: "Today, more than 750,000 – or over 10 percent – of Swiss nationals live outside Switzerland around the globe and help to convey a nuanced picture of Switzerland as a modern country, open to the world and leading it in innovation, while holding fast to its traditional values." The Ambassador added that "These values would not be spread without the vibrant Swiss community in the UAE".
