His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, has attended the announcement of the Sharjah World Book Capital 2019 theme and logo, on the sidelines of the opening ceremony of the 37th Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF). The emirate was awarded the prestigious title by UNESCO in recognition of its impactful role in promoting and supporting cultural movements on local, regional and international levels.

I would like to thank His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah for bestowing this honour on me amidst an esteemed Arab and international cultural gathering. Our collective work to create a better society stems from a deep-seated responsibility towards our local community and humanity as a whole. The fruits that we reap today is due to the collective efforts and hard work we put in whenever we embark on a new humanitarian project. Our message would not have travelled around the world if we did not have a unified vision and mission that keeps us focused on our humanitarian efforts.
