KIPCO par­tic­i­pates in 32nd NUKS-USA Con­fer­ence

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: Kuwait Projects Com­pany (KIPCO) par­tic­i­pated in the 32nd Con­fer­ence of the Na­tional Union of Kuwaiti Stu­dents - USA Branch (NUKS-USA) for the fifth con­sec­u­tive year. KIPCO was a Plat­inum Spon­sor for the event, which was held on Novem­ber 25-28 in San Diego, Cal­i­for­nia.

Speak­ing at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the con­fer­ence, themed ‘Awak­en­ing Kuwait’s Dream’, Eman Al-Awadhi, KIPCO’s Group Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Di­rec­tor, said: “With young Kuwaitis ac­count­ing for more than 70 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion, both the gov­ern­ment and the pri­vate sec­tor are plac­ing great im­por­tance on this seg­ment of the so­ci­ety. KIPCO be­lieves that Kuwait’s so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment de­pends heav­ily on the cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion that this young and tal­ented gen­er­a­tion has to of­fer.”

She added: “As part of KIPCO’s busi­ness phi­los­o­phy, we seek ways to sup­port young peo­ple as they graduate and take on the op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able to them in dif­fer­ent busi­ness sec­tors. This is why it is im­por­tant for us to in­ter­act with stu­dents such as your­selves, who are be­ing ed­u­cated in some of the world’s best uni­ver­si­ties, and to understand how to uti­lize your knowl­edge and in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure to achieve greater lev­els of suc­cess at the per­sonal, busi­ness and na­tional lev­els.”

KIPCO and its Group com­pa­nies also par­tic­i­pated in the Ca­reer Fair, which in­cluded an in­ter­ac­tive ses­sion led by so­cial me­dia celebrity, Ali Al-Fad­hala, known as 228. The stu­dents were quizzed about the com­pa­nies and those who an­swered cor­rectly each re­ceived an X-Change Pre­paid Card from Bur­gan Bank, worth $300. KIPCO and sev­eral of its Group com­pa­nies will be en­gag­ing stu­dents in sev­eral events over the course of the con­fer­ence.
