Abu Dhabi, December 22, 2013
The Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) celebrated the 20th anniversary of its establishment at a conference recently.
The conference, attended by journalists and specialists in intellect, culture and scientific research, featured a documentary on the centre and its achievements over the past 20 years.
ECSSR director general Dr Jamal Sanad Al-Suwaidi said: “Our sustained pursuit of excellence is the fruit of exerted efforts and dedication over 20 years spent overcoming challenges to achieve our goals, in light of the ECSSR’s ambition and determination to confirm its status, not only locally and regionally, but also internationally, and to serve the community in the UAE, GCC, the Arab region and around the world.”
He commended the role of the media in covering the activities of the centre as an influential source in forming public opinion.
“Since its establishment, the ECSSR has carried out its mission to support national decision-making and serve both the UAE and GCC societies in a manner that is mindful of tradition, yet embraces modernity," stated Al Suwaidi.
"It has enriched the catalogue of Gulf, Arab and international research by exploring a broad range of topics and themes addressing local, regional, and international issues through around 1,000 publications and 800 events,” he added. - TradeArabia News Service
