He hailed the positive initiatives of the Advisor to HM the King for Media Affairs and his honourable history as one of the pioneers of Bahrain and the Arab media and press. He lauded Al Hamar’s efforts in setting up the Gulf News Agency (currently Bahrain News Agency), Al-Ayam Press and Publishing in 1989, as well as his contribution to founding Bahrain Journalists Association and developing the media, telecommunication, cultural and art sectors when he took charge of the Information Ministry.

Al Hamar was appointed Advisor to HM the King for Media Affairs in 2005 and took part in many GCC, Arab and international media functions.

The Information Minister underlined appreciation of all the ministry personnel as well as the Bahraini press community of the honour, commending keenness of Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum on honouring the outstanding and creative Arab personalities, which reflects the humanitarian and civilisational role of the UAE in boosting pan-Arab work and serving Arab issues.
