A private publisher in Abu Dhabi has launched a new Arabic language newspaper, which it said would focus on social issues, innovation and creativity, environment, renewable energy and other topics.
'Al Dar' will be published on Wednesday every week by Al Jewa Culture and Media, one of the largest publishing houses in the UAE.
“This newspaper is part of our plan to invest in information and knowledge in the UAE. We already have a successful experience in this field through 'Al Gharbiya' newpaper which was launched in 2012,” Al Jewa’s director General Afra Saif Al Hamli said in a statement sent to Emirates 24|7.
The company’s CEO Mohammed Al Mubarak said the new publication would concentrate on national issues in the UAE. “It will cover many social and economic issues as well as other topics of concern to the UAE people,” he said.
The UAE, with a population of around eight million, has several Arabic and English language newspapers, including Emirates 24|7, Emarat Al Youm, Al Bayan, Al Ittihad, Al Khaleej, Akhbar Al Arab, Khaleej Times, Gulf Today, Gulf News and Al Watan.
