The General Secretariat of Khalifa International Date Palm Award has announced the opening of the nominations for its eighth session in 2016 in five categories, starting from June 1st to October 30th 2015.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Abdelouahhab Zaid, Secretary-General of the Award said: "The Khalifa International Date Palm Award since its inception has made significant growth over seven sessions thanks to its patron President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, as well as the great support for the award by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and follow-up and attention of H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, who have given the date palm sector in general, and Khalifa International Date Palm Award in particular great attention and special care."

He explained that the Secretariat of the Award and the Scientific Committee has completed all the preparations and the arrangements and special programmes to start receiving applications under the directives of Sheikh Nahyan Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Khalifa International Date Palm Award, and under the conditions and standards in each category.

The Secretary-General expressed his confidence that participation and competition will be broader and more in the eighth session of the Khalifa International Date Palm Award in all categories compared to the achievements and the polarisation of the main researchers, experts and farmers on the Arab and international levels during the past sessions as a first prize specialised in the world.
