Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, took to Twitter on Monday to announce the details of a new law issued by President Sheikh Khalifa to allow reading during work hours and removing taxes and fees from reading materials.



He proclaimed that the new law is an unprecedented cultural and legislative initiative. “The law will also oblige schools to develop an annual plan to encourage reading among students, and consolidate respect of the book, preventing destroying any book instead preserve, reuse or donate it,” Sheikh Mohammed said.



“Our goal is for 2016 to be the beginning of a sustainable cultural change among generations — a change that consolidates the importance of reading and celebrates knowledge and boosts the status of reading,” Sheikh Mohammed tweeted.



WE SAID THIS: Sheikh Mohammed does it once again!
