ABU DHABI, 9 November (BelTA - WAM) - Jean-Luc Martinez, President-Director of the Musee du Louvre, has expressed his happiness at the Louvre Abu Dhabi opening in the UAE.

It is a great honour for France and the Musee du Louvre to contribute to the birth of this grand museum in Abu Dhabi, which will open to the public on 11th November, he said.

"The Louvre Abu Dhabi will provide an opportunity for an important segment of the world's population, especially residents in the Middle East, to see the world's most precious treasures from rare and invaluable artefacts," Martinez said in a statement to the Emirates News Agency, WAM.

French architect Jean Nouvel, the designer of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, has described the new museum as the world's most important and the most prestigious cultural project of the century.

"The Louvre Abu Dhabi's architectural design is, to me, a symbol of the UAE's renaissance and development," he added.
