Sultan Bin Saeed Al Mansouri, Minister of Economy, said: 'Ever since the country declared 2017 as the Year of Giving, national efforts have started to contribute to the development of an integrated framework that will spread the culture of giving across the country.' 

Therefore, by the end of the year, CSR will be mandatory to execute among 400,000 companies across the country, aiming to dedicate at least Dh500 million in cash or in-kind philanthropic work from companies.
