THE services of office boys at government and private sectors will be scraped today to promote tomorrow’s 2019 Bahrain Sports Day to be held at various designated areas around the kingdom.
The executive committee, meanwhile, continued its arrangements visiting Isa Town Sports City, near the National Stadium in Riffa, where they inspected the facilities set up for sport activities.
Assistant Undersecretary for Resources and Services at the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, and member of the organising committee Abdulaziz Al Ashraaf said he was pleased with the arrangements being made.
He said the ministry’s involvement is in line with the directives of Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism Zayed Al Zayani and His Royal Highness Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister.
Employees of public and private sectors will be given half-a-day off to attend the Sports Day, he added.
Al Ashraf thanked all members of the organising committee and its standing committees for their efforts in preparation for this annual event.
All government and non-government organisations, including ministries, agencies, institutions, banks, financial institutions and companies will be involved in several sport activities and programmes across the country.
