Message from His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi,
UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah
Success isn’t something that happens merely by chance. Success is the result of dedication and commitment towards reaching a goal. Success is a refusal to countenance failure.
The prosperity and progress achieved by Ras Al Khaimah in such a short period of time should be seen in this light. The rapid rise of our Emirate is a stunning testament to the strength of our Vision and our human capital – the cooperation, hard work and enthusiasm of our citizens and resident expatriates to create a story of accomplishment has proved to be the vital foundation of our Emirate’s success.
We are rightfully proud of all of our accomplishments as they demonstrate that there are no limits to our ambitions, or to our ability to make these ambitions a reality.
Our achievements have not occurred in a vacuum. They have required a carefully constructed framework; one which facilitates the implementation of ideas and allows us to carefully measure and hone our successes against the progress of time. There are many more milestones ahead as we continue on our mission to provide the best possible life opportunities for the people of Ras Al Khaimah. Today, we are more confident, more certain and more determined than ever to play an active role in enhancing Ras Al Khaimah’s position as a home for innovation and excellence, and in establishing its presence as a center for creative and cultural discourse among all peoples.
We believe in the importance of the media in conveying Ras Al Khaimah’s success story to regional and global audiences. We need to tell the complete narrative of our beloved Emirate and we require the media’s help in sharing our story with the world.
We know the media sector is facing significant changes, with the growth of digital platforms and social media channels – tools that represent a quantum leap in how broadcasters and content communicators interact with their audiences.
These sweeping changes are one of the reasons for our decision to empower Ras Al Khaimah Government Media Office (RAKGMO) with a remit to communicate news of the Emirate’s development. Its crucial role is to tell Ras Al Khaimah’s story to the world and to project a shining image that reflects the true spirit of this remarkable Emirate.
RAKGMO’s distinguished team is the vanguard of media efforts in the Emirate; they are the drivers of communication, cooperation and coordination, the link that connects Ras Al Khaimah stakeholders with the relevant local, regional and international media.
RAKGMO is the interface between Ras Al Khaimah and the world; it is the platform that allows the delivery of a clear message reflecting the reality of an Emirate brimming with potential. The Media Office will highlight the economic, social and cultural achievements that make the Emirate a preferred destination for business and investment and for lifestyle, leisure and tourism, while adhering to best international practices.
RAKGMO will be a locus of positive communication, interaction and constructive dialogue; it is our pen, as we introduce a story of success to the world, titled: Ras Al Khaimah.
