The Ministry sought to introduce its employees to the country’s cultural and humanitarian achievements.
A delegation from the Ministry of State for Federal National Council Affairs (MFNCA) visited Qasr Al Watan in Abu Dhabi as part of the Ministry’s celebrations to mark the UAE’s 48th National Day.
Qasr Al Watan is a national landmark and an architectural masterpiece that embodies the history of the United Arab Emirates and sheds light on the progress of its cultural and human development in various fields and sectors.
His Excellency Sami bin Adi, the MFNCA’s Assistant Undersecretary for the Support Services Sector, headed the delegation, which included several heads of departments along with a group of the Ministry’s staff. The visitors were taken on a tour of the building’s hallways to explore its design, which emulates Arab and Islamic architecture, and features geometric forms inspired from the UAE’s natural environment.
“Qasr Al Watan is a prominent national landmark and an outstanding work of architecture and design,” said H.E. bin Adi. “It houses several facilities that embody the UAE’s rich history, represent its cultural and human heritage, and shed light on its many accomplishments. The structure tells the story of the UAE’s journey towards an advanced, modern state, whose foundations were laid by our Founding Fathers. It highlights our wise leadership’s approach to keep the momentum going and shape a prosperous future for current and forthcoming generations of Emiratis.”
“Our visit today is part of our National Day celebrations, where we reiterate our dedication to educating our employees about every significant historical milestone in the UAE’s journey, and about the approach established by our Founding Father, which revolves around the inclusive concept of ‘Shura’ to pursue the country and the people’s best interest,” H.E. concluded.
The visiting delegation were also introduced to the concept behind Qasr Al Watan and its main hall, designed to host formal events and receptions, as well as the ‘Spirit of Cooperation’ hall, created to host meetings of the UAE’s Federal Supreme Council.
The tour included a stop at the Qasr Al Watan Library, which is a prime academic and knowledge destination housing more than 50,000 publications on the UAE’s history and heritage. The Ministry staff finally visited the House of Knowledge, which contains displays and rare artworks that shed light on Arab civilisation’s golden age, as well as its contributions in science, art, and literature.Email This Post
