‘SMART DEVEL­OP­MENT’ CUTS TIME, COST: MIN­IS­TER

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

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.

Hu­man re­sources

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.

Knowl­edge econ­omy

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
