ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Jan. 14 /Standard Newswire/ -- The following text is of remarks by President Bush while viewing exhibit of renewable energy technologies of Masdar:

THE PRESIDENT:  Amazing, isn't it?  This country has gotten its wealth from the ground and is now reinvesting in alternative forms of energy, sometimes joint venturing with U.S. institutions, like MIT.

THE PRESIDENT:  It's a modern society that's using its wealth not only to educate its people, but to stay on the leading edge of technological change.

 

Your Highness, it's been an amazing experience for me.  I don’t think most Americans understand the UAE.  And I don’t think most Americans understand that your education systems are modern and that you're thinking about the future in constructive ways.  I appreciate the chance to learn about you.

THE PRESIDENT:  I hope that my visit shines a spotlight on the Middle East, the opportunities to work constructively with our friends and allies, and shows people the truth about what life is like here in the UAE.  This is a remarkable place.  Its architecture is beautiful.  But the can-do spirit is amazing. 

 

And we just heard a briefing about how they're going to construct a city based entirely upon renewable energy.  It is -- it will be an opportunity to see what works and what won't work, and an opportunity to share their technology with others.

 

I appreciate the commitment to conservation and to the environment, and the leadership you've shown here.  This has been a very interesting experience.  I can't thank you enough for your hospitality.
