RTA adopts seven initiatives to mark Year of Giving

DUBAI, Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, has approved seven initiatives to be undertaken by RTA in response to the #Year of Giving initiative of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

“The UAE’s designation of 2017 as the Year of Giving complements the benevolent drive initiated by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, whose generosity reached out to the needy across the globe. Giving and charity have become a firm tradition and practice of the UAE under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces as well as the Members of the Supreme Council and Rulers of the Emirates.

“In keeping with the noble values of the UAE community, the RTA has approved seven initiatives marking the Year of Giving. These initiatives span a wide array of charitable activities related to culture, education, philanthropy, donations and benevolence in public transport fields,” noted Al Tayer.

The RTA will also step up its participation in national events such as National Day, Flag Day and Commemoration Day, as well as the annual days such as the World Environment Day, Public Transport Day and Labour Day.
