CAIRO, Dr. Fawzi Mohammed Al Ghweil, Director of Technical Administration of the Council of Arab Information Ministers at the Arab League, stated that Dubai is qualified to be the "Capital of the Arab Media."
In a statement to the Emirates News Agency, WAM, in Cairo, Al Ghweil congratulated the UAE for the naming of Dubai as the Capital of the Arab Media in 2020, adding that this decision is correct, as Dubai has a prominent regional and international stature.
