Emirates News Agency – UAE retains IFJ seat

MUSCAT, 3rd June, 2022 (WAM) — The UAE has maintained its seat in the International Federation for Journalists (IFJ), after Mohammed Al Hammadi, Chairman of the UAE Journalists Association (UAEJA), won in the election held today for the IFJ’s executive committee membership.

The elections took place during the 31st Congress of the IFJ held in Oman.

On Tuesday, Al Hammadi also obtained membership in the Executive Bureau of the Federation of Asia-Pacific Journalists (FAPaJ), which was established during the Muscat meetings.

The UAE has a strong and distinguished presence in regional and international press events.

Al Hammadi thanked all unions and associations that voted for the UAE.

“Today, we have many friends worldwide, due to the significant efforts of the country’s wise leadership, led by President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai,” Al Hammadi said.

Al Hammadi also stressed that this achievement was accomplished due to the participation of the UAE Journalists Association in international events.

Over 250 participants representing journalists’ unions and associations from 92 countries attended the Congress, with key themes including the surveillance of journalists and action to end impunity for crimes against media workers.
