Promoting community spirit ‘vital for stability’

The National Plan to Promote the Spirit of Belonging to the Nation and Reinforce the Values of Citizenship (Bahrainouna) represents a platform to promote stability and prosperity in Bahrain, led by His Majesty King Hamad and supported by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, said Tourism Minister Fatima Al Sairafi yesterday.

She was speaking during a meeting between the ministry, the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), and the plan’s executive office.

While discussing joint tourism initiatives, the three sides reviewed the promotion of Hawar Islands and introducing Bahrain’s tourism activities through the Bahrain Calendar and the tourism app.

The minister praised Bahrainouna’s goal of promoting national values, supported by Interior Minister General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, who is the plan’s implementation follow-up committee chairman.

She asserted that these initiatives and programmes fall within the objectives of Bahrainouna, which affirm the preservation of the authentic values, customs and traditions of the Bahraini society, as well as consolidating the principles of national identity, loyalty, tolerance, and pride in Arab and Islamic heritage, being essential components of the Bahraini national identity.

Ms Al Sairafi affirmed the importance of co-operation between the government and the private sector in achieving comprehensive development goals and promoting the values of national identity.
