The National Archives celebrated the victory of Man City and extended congratulations to HH Mansour Bin Zayed

The National Archives extended its heartiest and sincere congratulations to H.H. Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs and Owner of Manchester City Football Club on its victory through which Man City claimed its second consecutive English Premier League (EPL) title.

During a celebration attended by National Archives staff and a large number of guests, H.E. Dr. Abdulla Al Raisi, Director General of the National Archives commended the leading role of H.H. Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan that led to this great achievement.

His Excellency Dr. Al Raisi also congratulated the team players and members of its technical and administrative system for their great efforts during this season which led to the team’s maintaining this eminent position and claiming the title for the second consecutive season. He wished the team further success and outstanding victories and achievements to meet its fans’ high aspirations.

The celebration came as part of the National Archives' annual habit of celebrating the holy month of Ramadan by holding an Iftar banquet, held this year on the 8th of Ramadan corresponding to May 13, 2019, at the Emirates Palace Hotel. The Iftar banquet is pursuant to the National Archive's strategy aimed at disseminating an atmosphere of prevailing tolerance, as well as strengthening friendly and fraternity ties and relations between the NA employees.

It is worth mentioning that through holding these annual Ramadan Iftar banquets, the National Archives seeks to promote friendly relations and enhance social communication between its employees away from the habitual and daily work-routine in an atmosphere which promotes the values of tolerance, social harmony and solidarity, enhances team-work spirit and encourages further efforts towards realizing outstanding accomplishments to add to the National Archives' achievements in the collection and preservation of the memory of the nation.

The annual Iftar ceremony helps promote friendly corporate relations between the National Archives and various other entities whose representatives joined the NA staff gathering this Ramadan which would positively reflect on and contribute to developing a favorable work environment.

This year, the National Archives' Iftar invitation was accepted by a large number of officials, namely H.E. Hussain Al Hammadi, Minister of Education, H.E. Dr. Major General Ahmed Nasser Al Raisi, Inspector General of the Ministry Of Interior, and a number of foreign Ambassadors to the UAE.

The National Archives displayed a documentary film, on several screens at the Iftar hall, showing the various events of the International Council on Archives (ICA) Congress 2019, the National Archivists’ Forum which meetings were hosted by the National Archives in Abu Dhabi. The documentary film also presented logo launching ceremony for the ICA Congress 2020 which will be hosted by the UAE next year and the launching events of the Arabian Gulf Digital Archive (AGDA) Portal.
