Thanks for doubling allowance

LONDON — The UAE students sent to the UK for higher studies have expressed their gratitude to the President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and General Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, for doubling their monthly allowances.

Between 1994 to 2000. The allowance was 822 dollars.

That allowance had not been changed since the early eighties, and we all know inflation has devalued the Dollar.

Now they finally double the 822 figure, most likely, as I'm not sure if they increased it in the past few years.

What's interesting is that "Thanks" have to be in order to the Rulers, as always, and as ever.
