Over 100 attendees of the third Young Arab Media Leaders Programme met His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
During his meeting with the programme's participants, who hail from 19 Arab countries, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid highlighted the importance of committing to the ethics of journalism. "You must all assume the responsibility of enhancing the image and reputation of the Arab world, and we must be aware of how we interact with and commit to credible sources. We must also highlight our Arab achievements and preserve our legacy. Journalists must convey the community's message and contribute to its development, and a true journalist must search for information and convey them to the world," he said.
The programme, held at the Youth Centre in the presence of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, was organised by the Arab Youth Centre to train Arab media talents, in cooperation with 40 regional and international media foundations.
Sheikh Mohammed urged the participants to benefit from the regional and international audience in the UAE, which hosts thousands of media institutions, journalists and experts from around the world.
The meeting was attended by Mohammad bin Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and the Future, and Shamma bint Suhail Faris Al Mazrui, Minister of State for Youth Affairs.
