Mohammed Bin Sultan Bin Khalifa Applauds the National Archives’ national role 


Sheikh Mohammed Bin Sultan Bin Khalifa commended the national role played by the National Archives of the United Arab Emirates as it collects the memory of the nation, preserving its various historical assets in accordance with the best international practices, transferring it to future generation and making it available to researchers and professionals via advanced technologies. Thus, the National Archives contributes to the national upbringing of generations and promotes loyalty and belonging to the nation.
This came during Sheikh Mohammed Bin Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan’s visit to the National Archives’ headquarters, where he was received by His Excellency Dr. Abdulla Mohammed Alraisi, who spoke about the National Archives duties in organizing archives, and preserving documents of ministries and institutions. HE also spoke about the modern and advanced technologies that the NA utilizes when carrying out daily tasks, as well as the NA’s activities in the “Year of Giving”. Furthermore, he discussed the NA’s role in the next phase in promoting and representing innovation in the archival work, indicating its great interest to ensure that NA’s upcoming plans are in line with the aspirations of the UAE Vision 2021. He focused on the excellence achieved by the National Archives, which was demonstrated by winning the 5-Star level of the Recognized for Excellence (R4E). The fact that the NA obtained this international certificate, which is issued by the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM), confirms the NA’s high-quality work approach and its leadership in all its activities.
His Excellency categorically attributed all the National Archives’ success and excellence to the significant attention and support of the wise leadership, and of the support of HH Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed , Deputy prime minister, minister of presidential affairs and chairman of the National archives.
Sheikh Mohammed Bin Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan reviewed Al Bu Falah family tree, which includes hundreds of personalities starting from Yas, to the descendants of the grandsons of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s sons. He also viewed the smart applications of the Sheikhs’ Diaries and of the National Archives. Accompanied by HE Dr. Abdulla Mohammed Alraisi, he further toured the NA’s departments and sections. They started at the Presidential Archives section, which documents the history of the UAE, and is keen to collect and document the march of the late Founding Leader Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and the activities of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Then they watched, in Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Virtual Reality Theater, a three-dimensional high-definition documentary about the UAE history, its present and its future prospects. They reviewed samples of written documents and historical photos and maps at Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Hall. The tour included Emirates Library, which is specialized in the history and the culture of the UAE and the Gulf Region, and considered an important reference for researchers, as it holds important sources and references in paper and electronic forms.
