Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: Deputy Chair­man of Kuwait Cham­ber of Commerce and In­dus­try (KCCI) Ab­dul­wa­hab Al-Wazan em­pha­sized the im­por­tance of the 8th In­ter­na­tional In­ven­tion Fair of the Mid­dle East (IIFME), cur­rently held in Kuwait. With­out in­ven­tions, there will be no real econ­omy, Wazan told KUNA on the side­lines of the fair. He ex­pressed the KCCI sup­port and wel­come to Kuwait’s or­ga­ni­za­tion and host­ing of such kind of in­ter­na­tional events.

For­mer Kuwaiti min­is­ter of state for pub­lic works Fadel Safar echoed a sim­i­lar view. He pointed out that the In­ter­na­tional In­ven­tion Fair is a source of pride for Kuwait it hosts over 160 bril­liant in­ven­tors from 30 coun­tries who com­pete to serve hu­man­ity. Safar also stated that in­ven­tions dis­played are greatly di­verse and in­clude prod­ucts to de­velop var­i­ous sec­tors.

Mean­while, head of Qatar del­e­ga­tion to the fair Mo­ham­mad Al-Kowari said that his coun­try seeks to draw upon Kuwait’s ex­pe­ri­ence on or­ga­niz­ing such events to sup­port the young in­ven­tors and help them meet and pro­mote their work for busi­ness and in­dus­try lead­ers.

The 8th In­ter­na­tional In­ven­tion Fair is one of the most sig­nif­i­cant and largest spe­cial­ized ex­hi­bi­tions of in­ven­tions in the Mid­dle East, and deemed as the sec­ond largest in­ter­na­tional ex­hi­bi­tion all over the world.

Be­ing part of the ef­forts of the In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion of Geneva it is also deemed as an op­por­tu­nity for re­veal­ing the cul­ture of in­ven­tion to so­ci­eties and strength­en­ing the ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ships among the in­ven­tors, com­pa­nies and cor­po­ra­tions.

Or­ga­niz­ing the in­ter­na­tional ex­hi­bi­tion in the Mid­dle East rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant as­pect of the im­ple­mented achieve­ments by the Sci­en­tific Club of Kuwait and the spon­sor­ing au­thor­i­ties for this ex­hi­bi­tion. It is a great time to pro­mote in­ven­tions, in­crease in­ter­est, ap­pre­ci­ate the ideas and make an in­vest­ment in the ideas and in­ven­tions and peo­ple. — KUNA
