The National Law of Reading is an unprecedented legislative initiative to help achieve the UAE’s vision of a knowledge-based economy.
The law will see books given to babies and work-related reading time to government staff. Coffee shops must provide reading material to customers, and the private sector is encouraged to invest in new libraries and cultural centres.
We LOVE this initiative and the progressiveness of the UAE leadership. What will you do to promote reading in your workplace? We started our own book club and will share our love of books in each issue of The Dubai 100.
