DUBAI: Under the patronage of Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the third Arab Social Media Influencers Summit (ASMIS), organised by the Dubai Press Club (DPC), will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Monday. The Summit brings together prominent social media influencers from across the Arab region and the world.

Queen Rania Al Abdullah, wife of King Abdullah II of Jordan, will deliver the keynote address at the Summit.

During the main session, Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, King of Bahrain’s Representative for Charity Work and Youth Affairs, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Royal Charity Organisation and President of the Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC), will provide his perspectives on humanitarian and charitable work and its importance to the welfare of society at a discussion session moderated by Mustafa Al Agha from the Middle East Broadcasting Corporation (MBC).

Other dignitaries participating in the Arab Social Media Influencers Summit (ASMIS) include Abdelkader Messahel, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Algeria; Sheikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Head of the Municipality and Planning Department – Ajman; Princess Reema Bint Bandar Al Saud, Vice-President for Development and Planning at the Saudi Arabian General Sports Authority; Princess Lamia Bint Majed Al Saud, Secretary General and member of the Board of Trustees at Alwaleed Philanthropies; and a host of Arab and international figures.

On this occasion, President of Dubai Press Club (DPC) and Chairperson of the ASMIS Organising Committee Mona Ghanem Al Marri said that the participation of Queen Rania Al Abdullah will greatly enrich the discussions at the Summit.

Queen Rania is a pioneer in humanitarian work, focusing many of her efforts on developing and reforming education, empowering local communities and women, protecting children, and driving innovation, technology and entrepreneurship through society. She uses social media to advocate actively in support of such causes.

Al Marri said: “We are delighted to welcome an iconic Arab figure such as Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, who is also a well-known character in the field of humanitarian and charitable work with an emphasis on issues related to education and youth development. Queen Rania is a strong advocate of tolerance, understanding, and bringing about positive change in society.”
