The lecture is part of Dubai Customs’ activities and events in the National Month of Reading, which is marked in March every year.
In his lecture, Al Gergawi stressed the importance of reading in supporting the development and prosperity of nations.
“It is very important to develop the habit of reading for our children and help make that a daily routine.
