The National, Abu Dhabi Media’s first English-language publication distributed throughout the UAE and internationally, is setting a new standard of quality journalism in English-language newspapers in the Middle East. Publishing seven days a week, The National has sought to lead a national debate about the issues affecting the UAE. Launched in April, 2008, The National sought to establish an institution on par with some of the greatest newspapers in the West, but with the authenticity of a paper made in the UAE. With more than 250 journalists in the seven emirates of the UAE and in foreign bureaus throughout the world, The National tells the story of the Middle East as seen through the region’s eyes. Focused on the capital, Abu Dhabi, but anchored in the new social and political reality that is the emerging nation within a fast changing global context, the paper offers fresh, compelling content that’s made in the UAE.
