Statement by H.E. Khalid Jasim Al Midfa, Chairman of Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA), on World Heritage Day- April 18

“The Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority joins the global community in its celebration of the World Heritage Day, the annual event highlighting the heritage, history, roots and traditions of every nation in the world. This celebration complements the SCTDA’s aim to preserve Emirati culture by providing a glimpse of our rich cultural heritage, which represents how life was experienced by the generations before us, while also strengthening our national identity. In line with the guidance and vision of H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, we reaffirm our commitment towards preserving our heritage and identity by continuing to observe many of our traditional celebrations. In line with this, we renew our loyalty and commitment to the directives and visions of the UAE to not only become a cradle of culture and world heritage but to also serve as a global hub of tolerance as it continues to promote appreciation and respect for the culture and heritage of other people and societies present in the UAE today.”
