The National Archives continues to receive the public in its pavilion at Cairo Book Fair

The National Archives continues its active participation in Cairo International Book Fair; it receives researchers, intellectuals, and various segments of society. The pavilion is well received by the Egyptian public, exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.
The National Archives' participation comes in the framework of implementing its initiatives in the Year of Zayed, and its focus on highlighting the values of the Year of Zayed; namely respect, wisdom, human development and sustainability. The participation includes many events and projects that chronicle and document merits and virtues of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. As the 49th session of the exhibition coincides with the UAE's celebration of the Year of Zayed, the National Archives gifted its publications, especially those dealing with the journey and values of the Late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, to the Egyptian people and the public visiting the exhibition.
This participation of the National Archives reflects the strong relationship between the United Arab Emirates and the Arab Republic of Egypt, established by the Late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, a special  relationship that is becoming increasingly established under the wise leadership of the two brotherly countries.
The National Archives' pavilion at the Cairo International Book Fair witnesses a great demand for exploring the history of the UAE and the celebration of the Year of Zayed. This has encouraged the exhibition visitors to check the documents on the UAE history and its relations with Egypt. The National Archives' pavilion included historical photographs documenting the visits of the Founding Leader to the Arab Republic of Egypt and his meetings with different Egyptian presidents and officials. The pavilion also presented pictures of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and dignitaries and leaders of the UAE and their meetings with presidents and leaders of Egypt in the framework of their bilateral coordination, strong relations and continuous mutual support.
The participation of the National Archives in the Cairo International Book Fair attracted a great interest from the media, which shed lights on the aspects of the life and journey of the Founding Leader Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan and his role in the establishment of the United Arab Emirates, as well as his local, Arab and international achievements, his love for Egypt and its people, and his role in strengthening brotherly relations between the two countries.
It is noteworthy that the National Archives' pavilion receives more than 500 visitors daily and has been open to visitors since the beginning of the exhibition. The opening ceremony was attended by H.E. Mohammed Ahmed Al Murr, Deputy Chairman of the National Archives, H.E. Dr. Abdulla Mohammed Alraisi, Director General of the National Archives, Farhan Al Marzouqi, Director of Corporate and Community Outreach Department at the National Archives and a number of the National Archives' staff.
