He noted that the environmental sector is a key component in developing various economic sectors that bolsters cities' status on the global tourism map.

Hana Saif Al Suwaidi, Chairperson of Sharjah's Environment and Protected Areas Authority said that: "The participation of the Formula 1 athletes in the afforestation process at Al Muntathar Reserve confirms the Authority's efforts to allow everyone to participate in the cultivation of this reserve. We are pleased with the participation of the athletes to sustain environmental culture and raise community awareness of positive behaviours for the benefit of the environment.
