‘SMART DEVELOPMENT’ CUTS TIME, COST: MINISTER
Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr Bader AlEssa said yesterday that the technological development reduces administrative costs because it sums up the time and cost. Essa made his remarks in a press statement during the opening of ‘Heading Global 2016 Exhibition’ organized by the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) with participation of 23 government bodies and private sector. The vision of the event is to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, he added.
Meanwhile, PAAET Director General Dr Ahmad Al-Athari welcomed all those present at the Heading Global conference hosted by PAAET. He said human experience has proved that material wealth alone is not enough to build a nation, and does not allow it to advance and flourish economically and socially, except by how much it has invested in its human resources. “Human resources are the result of what educational establishments produce, as they are the key to knowledge and the source of gaining skills and abilities.
Here we realize the important role of PAAET in developing human resources and readying citizens who can bear the responsibilities of national action in various development fields,” Athari said. He said the authority has always looked for the sources of knowledge and science to participate in development, enhancing education quality and preparing skilled national manpower that can navigate the future with all its obstacles and difficulties.
In the meantime, the general coordinator of the conference Dr Najlaa Al-Faraj expressed appreciation to sponsoring companies that are well known in the service of the country. She said the conference topics revolve around the role of knowledge economy in developing the scientific, engineering, technological, industrial and health sectors to become pioneers in the national economy sectors. She said the conference has eight topics - smart cities, smart energy, smart transport, smart health, smart negotiations, smart environmental technology, smart society and smart work environment. Heading Global 2016 Exhibition is a three-day exhibition that aims to identify emerging opportunities and help formulate and implement successful smart sustainable and inclusive growth strategies, policies and practices. — Agencies
