The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) has announced the launch of a safe and clean certification programme aiming to uplift and standardise the cleanliness and hygiene levels across all businesses and organisations in the tourism sector.

The country was highly praised for its excellent intervention measures globally, which included health, hygiene, and safety regulations as well as other supportive schemes which consider the economic impact of COVID-19.
