This is a moment of pride for all of us who have been part of this incredible journey, Dubai has been our home for almost five decades, and to light up the Burj Khalifa to showcase the strong spirit of togetherness that exists in the UAE is a feeling of the utmost honour”, said Aamer Sheikh, PepsiCo, GM and President, MENA and Pakistan.
