UAE media contributes to strengthening moral education: Ali bin Tamim

Dr. bin Tamim highlighted, in a statement to Emirates News Agency, WAM, the necessary presence of cultural media organisations that can keep pace with developments happening in the country, through establishing partnerships with relevant organisations and sharing and promoting their achievements. The media should also follow important activities, such as the Aqdar World Summit, from the first media coverage to interacting and building cultural and collective awareness among the community, by using modern technologies, whether traditional or digital, to reach their audience, he added.

There is no doubt that the media’s connection with moral education must also be based on the highest levels of professionalism, sincerity and faith, he explained, while noting the awareness of the UAE community about the importance of the media’s message against extremist ideologies, which aim to influence their thoughts.
