Brig. Bin Bleilah expressed at the ceremony, which was also attended by Saeed Al Naboodah, CEO Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), his surprise with the high standard of the papers written and prepared by the participating children. He said: "I was really impressed with the mature thinking of those kids and the good understanding they have of their society's problems as they spoke about issues pertaining to environment, school among others."

He said that the recommendations that resulted from the annual conference, which will be held at a bigger scale in the years to come, will be submitted to the authorities to consider the feasibility of their implementation.

At a separate ceremony, a total of 15 DNRD staff working with the administrative and financial affairs section were honoured on behalf of Brig. Bin Bleilah by Lieutenant-Colonel Jassim Abdul Ghafoor, Assistant Director for the Executive Office Affairs, in appreciation of their distinction in performing their duties. The honouring of distinguished employees in each and every section of DNRD is a policy adopted by the department to encourage its staff and motivate them to provide the best service to the customers.

Sergeant Nejmah Al Mazroui, one of the distinguished employees said that she was waiting this honouring for a while. "We are working very hard and are capable of keeping pace with all the new technologies introduced at the department," said Nejmah who studied information technology on the department's expenses and now holder of a diploma in this field.

Another honoured officer is Maitha Ibrahim who is studying at the Higher Colleges of Technology. He has been working with the department for one year after receiving training there on two successive summer holidays. "I haven't yet completed a year for service in this department, but I want to thank them for their confidence in me," she said, while a third woman employee Mariam Ibrahim didn't expect the honouring because she was new and has completed one year and a month. "It is definitely an encouraging sign that hard working people are noticed and appreciated."
