The move follows the directives by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Public Works, Chairman of the NMC.

The NMC will organise the visit of media delegations to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, Khalifa Burj in Dubai, the highest tower in the world. The General Women’s Union will host the media delegations at the Heritage Village at the Union’s office in Abu Dhabi, where they will attend that folklore ceremony, which will feature the UAE cultural identity.

The guests’ meetings with the senior officials will give them the first hand information about the UAE achievements over the last four decades and future comprehensive development plans in line with the sustainable development programmes in the UAE.

Meanwhile, the external media department at NMC will provide the journalists with the media reports, photos and CDs about the UAE achievements to help them cover the national day celebrations nation-wide.

The department had provided the UAE Embassies abroad with the special report on the UAE achievements in Arabic and English languages, to update the media institutions worldwide about the successes attained by the UAE in comprehensive development, human resources development and the political and economic empowerment.

Emirates News Agency (WAM), is now daily publishing the reports in Arabic, English and French, highlighting the major UAE achievements in 40 years, with especial coverage of the political, economic, cultural, sports, social, women, foreign and humanitarian aid achievements, and the UAE’s efforts in the area of renewable and nuclear energy, satellites, as well as tourism, travel and aviation industry.
