Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah, today met with participant of the 6th Edition of Fujairah Media Forum organised by the Fujairah Culture and Media Authority (FCMA) under the slogan “Arab Media and Enlightenment, the Role We Expect”.

Sheikh Hamad praised the efforts being exerted by participants and organisers of the forum to highlight the role played by media in enlightenment and forming the public opinion.
He also underscored the importance of reaching an overall vision at the end of the sessions, which would contribute to strengthening pillars of Arab media outlets.
Fujairah Ruler added that media has moved from not only publishing news, but also analysing and criticising them, which resulted in doubling the responsibility of media making it a double-edged weapon. He added that this fact has confirmed the importance for media to show the truth without exaggeration.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Hamad expressed his happiness to meet an elite of thought and culture figures, as well as media experts in the region and across the world. He also wished them good luck.
