The competition aims to develop the capabilities and skills of the civil defense staff, and raise their efficiency and physical fitness to prepare them to perform their duties to the fullest.

Text box: Special Pavilion for Young Emirati Entrepreneurs
The MoI allocated a special pavilion for young Emirati entrepreneurs to showcase and promote their projects within the ISNR 2016 activities. The pavilion will be located in Hall 4 of the MoI’s exhibition.
Lt. Colonel Faisal Mohammed Al Shimmari, Executive Director of the MoI’s Smart Government Program and Chairman of the MoI Pavilion Committee, said that the allocation of a pavilion to showcase young Emiratis’ projects comes from the ministry’s eagerness to encourage and support small to medium enterprises and to highlight their achievements. It also falls under the ministry’s efforts to further the efforts of the government and a number of local institutions which support youth enterprises, such as the Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for Small and Medium Enterprises Development, which enhance this sector and support its growth.
Lt. Colonel Al Shimmari emphasized the ministry’s role in supporting and offering facilities to the local small and medium enterprises sector, which strengthens the success and sustainability of the sector. This in turn contributes to raising the GDP of the country, he said.
He noted that the exhibition gives 17 national enterprises the opportunity to showcase their achievements and the latest products and services they provide in the fields of security and safety, smart solutions, research and development, and information technology. This conveys our wise leadership’s eagerness to empower young national talent, and our belief in the importance of encouraging and supporting such projects.
