Ekaruna - - Press Highlights -

On the 2nd of Au­gust the Aj­man Tourism De­vel­op­ment De­part­ment (ATDD) held a press con­fer­ence at The Aj­man Palace Ho­tel. The con­fer­ence was held to an­nounce the sec­ond Aj­man Liwa Dates Fes­ti­val that took place on the 5th to the 7th of Au­gust at the Emi­rates Hos­pi­tal­ity Cen­tre in Aj­man. Or­gan­ised by the ATDD in as­so­ci­a­tion with a spe­cial com­mit­tee from Liwa Dates Fes­ti­val, the fes­ti­val was to cel­e­brate the sea­son of “Ratab”. The fes­ti­val was aimed to en­cour­age the in­flux of tourists to Aj­man, whilst in­tro­duc­ing both res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to an ar­ray of dates, in­clud­ing Neghal, Kha­lass, Khenaizi, Fard, Lulu and more. A num­ber of lo­cal farm­ers at­tended the fair to ex­hibit their pro­duce. Ferghal Pur­cell, the Gen­eral Man­ager of The Aj­man Palace Ho­tel com­mented on the oc­ca­sion, “There is no doubt that tourism here is the sin­gle big­gest and most im­por­tant eco­nomic tool to drive busi­ness and de­vel­op­ment to the emi­rate of Aj­man. It is a great op­por­tu­nity for us at The Aj­man Palace Ho­tel to par­tic­i­pate in this amaz­ing ini­tia­tive aimed at pre­serv­ing and pro­mot­ing the lo­cal her­itage while en­hanc­ing the cul­tural knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence”.
