Dubai – MENA Herald: Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, Chairman, Al Habtoor Group welcomed Mohamed bin Hamad Saqr Al Moawda, Bahrain’s Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates at the Al Habtoor head office.

They talked about the strength of the GCC member states and the escalating tensions in other parts of the region.

Al Habtoor said he said he received “exceptional Arab hospitality and kindness”. He was in the capital Manama for a one-day visit last month where he was awarded with the ‘HH Sheikh Isa bin Ali Al-Khalifa Award for Volunteer Work’ in recognition for his philanthropic endeavours.

Al Habtoor said, “The relaxed ambience took me back to the old days when everyone knew one another and lived according to the beliefs of their grandfathers and great-grandfathers.”

He added, “I could not help but marvel at the way modernity has been blended seamlessly with historic attraction. I look forward to my next visit there.”

Al Habtoor gave the Ambassador a signed copy of his best-selling autobiography, ‘Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor – the Autobiography.’
