UAE media say it is great honor to publish Xi’s article

Read Time:2 Minute, 52 Second

Founded ten years ago, The National is not only a leading English-language newspaper in the UAE, but also a window for foreign readers to get information about the UAE and other Gulf countries.

With daily print circulation reaching 65,000, the newspaper’s online version receives about 10 million views each month. Nearly half of its readers are native English speakers outside the Gulf region.

Xi’s signed article covers two thirds of the layout, with a bold guide on the front page. “Our newspaper seldom makes banner headlines for signed articles”, said an editor in charge of the newspaper’s editorial page.

The National made blanket coverage of Xi’s visit in recent days, with a front-page article titled “Foundations of a great friendship” covered more than two pages on Tuesday, illustrating the detailed history of the official friendly visit to China paid by the UAE founding President Sheikh Zayed in 1990.

Besides, the middlemost two pages of the Tuesday newspaper was occupied by an editorial titled “Xi Jinping’s state visit will herald a new dawn for the UAE-China relationship” and an expert’s article called “Make no mistake, China’s Belt and Road initiative is a huge opportunity.”

“Xi’s visit is no doubt the biggest news in the UAE recently,” a local journalist told People’s Daily.
