Promotion of UAE Tourism Sector 

Dubai 18 November 2017:  In order to support the initiatives and endeavors of United Arab Emirates to promote the tourism sector and to raise awareness of the country's significant tourist landmarks, Emirates Post Group has issued a set of commemorative stamps for some significant tourist landmarks in UAE for the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development in cooperation with World Tourism Organization and Universal Postal Union.

Acting CEO of Emirates Post Group Mr. Abdullah Mohammed Al Ashram, said that this issuance sheds light on the decision taken by United Nations General Assembly in its 70th session of defining 2017 as International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, which aims to educate decision-makers and the public on the role of the sustainable tourism and its contribution to development and to consolidate the efforts of all concerned persons to work together to make tourism an incentive of positive change.

Mr. Abdulla added that this international initiative highlights the role of tourism in several key areas, i.e. inclusive and sustainable economic growth, social integration, employment generation, poverty reduction, resource efficiency, environmental protection, climate change as well as cultural values, diversity, heritage, values of mutual understanding and peace and security.

Mr. Abdullah indicated that this distinguished issuance of the UAE commemorative stamps included the most important tourist landmarks of each Emirate. Emirate of Abu Dhabi stamp included the image of the Emirates Palace, Emirate of Dubai stamp included fantastic picture of Burj Khalifa, Emirate of Sharjah stamp included wonderful artistic picture of Alnoor Island, Emirate of Ajman stamp included a traditional picture for the entrance to the Ajman Museum, Emirate of Umm al-Quwain stamp included Al-Shuhada Square, Emirate Ras Al-Khaimah stamp included Al-Jazirah Al-Hamra and Emirate of Fujairah stamp included the most important tourist attractions in it, i.e. Fujairah Citadel. 

He pointed out that such international cooperation with World Tourism Organization and Universal Postal Union characterizes the vital role played by tourism sector in the state. This sector has witnessed a growing and remarkable growth at the national and international level. 

He stressed that Emirates Post commemorative stamps are available in dedicated outlets for amateurs and interested persons, including collection tools and albums of commemorative stamps.
