UAE: Mansour Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan


Role: Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister, Presidential Court chairman, Mubadala chairman

A key member of the Bani Fatima bloc, Sheikh Mansour holds a range of senior political posts while also pursuing media and sporting interests at home and abroad that are widely seen to add to the UAE’s soft power projection. He is closely associated with efforts to foster good relations between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, not least via his marriage to a daughter of Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum.
