Mr Saeed Fadhel Al Mazrooei president and CEO of EMAL said that \"Today\'s achievement is symbolic in three ways: That we are building the Al Maqta\'a fort from aluminium is symbolic as it is the metal from which we are building a brighter Emirati economic future. That all of us have come together to build this World Record, a testament to the strength in unity that is possessed by the nation of the United Arab Emirates. And that through uniting together for this monumental effort to break a world record, it is symbolic as we further showcase Emirati excellence positively in the global community.\"
