Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid has said the fact so many Arab youth want to emigrate from their country is "painful".
The Vice President and Ruler of Dubai on Tuesday said the reality that many in the Arab world did not feel safe or could earn a livelihood in their own country was also sad.
Sheikh Mohammed was commenting on the Arab Youth Survey 2020, which found nearly half of young Arabs are thinking about leaving their home country amid anger over poor leadership, endemic corruption and deepening economic malaise.

The study also found that 77 per cent of Arab youth said there was government corruption in their country, with Yemen and Iraq at the top of the chart.
"It is painful [to know] that half of our Arab resources wish to emigrate," wrote Sheikh Mohammed on social media.
"It is painful when the Arab youth do not find a homeland, safety and livelihood in his homeland," he said.
"We say that if governments become corrupt, the country will be ruined, its security diminished and its citizens will leave it. Every official will be responsible [held accountable] before God. The story does not end here."
But the comprehensive survey found the UAE had been named as the most desirable country for young Arabs to live in for a ninth year in a row.
The country's safety, long history and the promise of higher salaries were among the main reasons for the country’s continuing popularity.
"The UAE is everyone's country," said Sheikh Mohammed. "We have tried to build a successful model and our experience, doors and books will remain open to all."
The survey also found that one in five young Arabs said they or someone in their family has lost their job due to coronavirus. A huge 72 per cent said it was “much more difficult” or a “little more difficult” to find a job now.
In the UAE, 41 per cent said finding a new job is harder now than before the pandemic.
