The Emirates Literature Foundation, in partnership with The Executive Council of Dubai, hosts the Dubai Translation Conference. The event celebrates the ideals of the National Reading Law, launched in the United Arab Emirates in 2016, and is another step towards enriching the quality of Arabic literature, promoting the creative legacy of the language to non-Arabic speakers and inculcating an appetite for reading, in an effort to create a new generation of literate and open-minded readers and a culturally and intellectually cohesive community.
