ABU DHABI, 30th October, 2018 (WAM) — Noura bint Mohammed Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development, said that the “Arab Reading Challenge” creates cultural mobility and helps to promote the capacities and skills of millions of Arab students.

Al Kaabi added that the current edition of the challenge has acquired a special importance, due to the declaration of the His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, that he will enlarge the scope of the challenge to include all countries and attract Arab students abroad, which will make it a global cultural event involving all segments of the community.

She stressed that the challenge will also start a knowledge renaissance and shape the minds of the youth, through raising their awareness of the role of reading in shaping their personalities, developing their intellectual and analytical skills, and promoting the stature of the Arab language while noting that the challenge is an Emirati effort to create a passion for knowledge among future generations.
