Tourism 'key contributor to national sustainable development'

Ras Al Khaimah Ruler and Supreme Council Member Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi highlighted the importance of the tourism sector as a key contributor to the process of national sustainable development.

Commemorating Jebel Jais, UAE's highest peak which is part of the Al Hajar mountain range, by publishing a special stamp embodies the stature of the UAE on the world map and reinforces the ambitions of Ras Al Khaimah to achieve growth through this vital sector, he added.

He also lauded the partnership between Emirates Post and the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, which aims to strengthen the country’s tourism sector and reinforce its international reputation in this area, Emirates News Agency WAM reported.

Sheikh Saud bin Saqr made this statement while receiving a souvenir stamp commemorating Jebel Jais from Emirates Post, in co-operation with the authority, in the presence of Sheikh Saqr bin Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi.

Emirates Post CEO Abdullah Al Ashram said: 'We are honoured to present this souvenir stamp to Sheikh Saud bin Saqr, who has managed to make Jebel Jais an environmental and agricultural treasure that embodies the ambitions of Ras Al Khaimah and is an ideal tourist destination.'
