A little about me:
In his capacity as the Attaché of Culture and Information from Turkey to the UAE, Salih Ozer is responsible for promoting Turkish culture and tourism in the UAE, thereby also strengthening the ties between the two nations. He is also active in building bridges and long-term links between his home country and the UAE.
Prior to this, Ozer held several ministerial roles in the period between 1992 and 2015, based in Turkey and Saudi Arabia. The last position he held in Turkey was as the Director of International Relations at the Ministry of Culture. He also served as counsellor of culture and tourism in Riyadh between 2009 and 2012.
Ozer’s areas of expertise span international relations, Turkish literature and tourism relationships. He has contributed to the digitalisation of the Ottoman Archives at the National Library of Turkey and has lectured on cultural interactions and tourism relationships at a Turkish-Arabic common values conference in Jordan.
