Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: Zain, the lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany in Kuwait, an­nounced its main spon­sor­ship of the fourth edi­tion of the Youth Em­pow­er­ment Sym­po­sium, which was held un­der the pa­tron­age of His High­ness the Amir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah from 9 - 10 Novem­ber.

HH the Amir’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Sheikh Sal­man Al-Ho­moud Al-Sabah, Min­is­ter of In­for­ma­tion and Min­is­ter of State for Youth Af­fairs, hon­ored Zain Kuwait’s Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Re­la­tions Di­rec­tor Waleed Al-Khashti for Zain’s strate­gic sup­port to the sym­po­sium for four con­sec­u­tive years.

Zain has been a main spon­sor of the Youth Em­pow­er­ment Sym­po­sium since its in­cep­tion four years ago, as the com­pany’s sup­port comes in line with its long term strat­egy of pro­vid­ing the nec­es­sary sup­port to na­tional ini­tia­tives aimed at up­lift­ing the ca­pa­bil­i­ties and skills of Kuwaiti youth. The sym­po­sium is con­sid­ered an ideal op­por­tu­nity for young peo­ple in Kuwait, es­pe­cially those who are in­ter­ested in launch­ing their own busi­nesses, to gain valu­able in­sights from a num­ber of in­ter­na­tion­ally and lo­cally renowned in­dus­try pi­o­neers, aca­demics, and ex­perts who ex­clu­sively shared their ex­pe­ri­ences.

Dur­ing the open­ing cer­e­mony, Khashti com­mented: “there is no doubt that Zain’s sup­port of this na­tional ini­tia­tive since its in­cep­tion stands as an in­di­ca­tion of the com­pany’s strong be­lief in the youth and the im­por­tance of their de­vel­op­ment across all fields of ac­tiv­ity.”

Khashti added: “we be­lieve Kuwaiti youth possess great po­ten­tial that only re­quires the slight­est en­cour­age­ment from in­dus­try lead­ers. Our sup­port of the sym­po­sium is our own way of pro­vid­ing youth with a rich en­vi­ron­ment that pro­vides lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ex­per­tise at its best.”

Khashti con­cluded: “this year’s edi­tion has a spe­cial essence to it as it fea­tures a num­ber of lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ex­perts and pi­o­neers in the fields of busi­ness, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, eco­nomics, and so­cial me­dia who will share their per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences and high­light the im­por­tance of build­ing one­self through ed­u­ca­tion.”

Zain’s pres­ence in this na­tional event show­cases the com­pany’s ded­i­ca­tion to em­pow­er­ing the en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills of youth in Kuwait. The sym­po­sium de­liv­ers out­stand­ing knowl­edge to tal­ented young peo­ple to be able to progress in their fields of in­ter­est as well as to spark the light of en­thu­si­asm within them.
