These recommendations were unveiled following the 88th meeting of Executive Office of Gulf NOCs Presidents held in Muscat (7-10 April) where the UAE NOC was represented by a delegation headed by HE Talal Al Shenqeeti, Acting Secretary General. The delegation also included HE Salih bin Ashour, Assistant Secretary-General for Technical & Sports Affairs, Hasan Taleb Al Marri, Director of the Technical Office of the Board and Executive Office, Ahmed Al Tayeb, Director of Sports & Technical Affairs, and Batti Al Abdouli, Director of Follow-up and Development Office at the NOC.

The JOC identified the possible fields of cooperation in exchanging visits of sports delegations, coaches, and physical education experts to share practical sciences, information and vision about the sport. It also focused on effective partnership in the team and individual games and reciprocal participation in sports events and preparation of sports cadres.

The Executive Office called for more cooperation with the JOC and Gulf NOCs in sports media, women sports, combating sports harassment and intolerance, as well as infrastructure-related projects and making sports a national priority as well as all other aspects such as combating sports harassment and intolerance, infrastructure-related projects and making sports a national priority among others.
