The president of the Brussels Press Club and owner/publisher of EU Reporter, Colin Stevens, was honoured this week (Tuesday, 21 May 2019) to be the official guest speaker at the inauguration ceremony of the launch of the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of the UAE in Abu Dhabi.

Under the patronage and attendance of HE Dr. Sultan Ahmad Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State, Chairman of the National Media Council of the United Arab Emirates, the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of the UAE was opened as a facility and meeting place for Foreign Correspondents from the world’s media based in or visiting the UAE.
