Al Mansouri added, "Since the declaration of 2017 as the Year of Giving, and in light of the wise leadership's guidance and follow-up, the concept of social responsibility in the country has witnessed successive developments, in which the Ministry of Economy adopted the Year of Giving's six main pillars, and in cooperation with its various partners, established legislative and regulatory structures to build CSR practices through 11 ambitious initiatives that provide the necessary mechanisms and tools to ensure the continuity and sustainability of this trend."

Al Mansouri explained that among the most prominent initiatives adopted is the CSR Smart Platform, a comprehensive electronic platform that provides the private sector opportunities to participate in development and community projects.
