H.E Hamad Obaid Al Mansoori, TRA Director General, has then delivered a speech focusing on the meaning and values of pride and dignity represented by the Flag Day. H.E Majed Al Mesmar, Deputy Director General for the Telecommunications Sector, has also given a speech highlighting the symbolic importance of the occasion for the country.

Additionally, all TRA employees have formed a huge human flag, and flags have been distributed on all Happiness Center visitors.

Moreover, ‘the Seventh Neighbor’ initiative has been launched, where TRA employees have distributed the national flag on their neighbors in their living areas, as well as the TRA’s neighboring buildings in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This initiative received a great response by TRA employees who expressed their enthusiasm to contribute.

Today, in the midst of our celebrations, we remember our brothers, who are defending the honor and dignity of the country in different locations throughout the UAE”.  H.E. added.
