Dr. Al Musallam, who is also the Chairman of SINF Supreme Committee, said, "It is an honour to host the 17th edition of Sharjah International Narrators Forum. Over the years, the forum has served as an important platform that resonates with narrators and storytellers in today’s society. This year, SINF looks to interact and share experiences of some of the world’s renowned narrators and appreciate their skills and unique ability to create emotions. Taking this as an opportunity, I extend my heartfelt appreciation to all of you for attending this conference and for your interest in promoting the heritage and culture of your nation."
