Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Gulf Bank is proud to have been the gold spon­sor of the 33rd Na­tional Union of Kuwaiti Stu­dents (NUKS) USA con­fer­ence, the largest an­nual gath­er­ing of Kuwaitis out­side Kuwait. En­ti­tled “A Con­sci­en­tious Gen­er­a­tion for an Everlast­ing Nation,” this year’s con­fer­ence was at­tended by around 4000 Kuwaitis and was held un­der the Pa­tron­age of Dr Bader Al-Essa, the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Higher Ed­u­ca­tion.

The con­fer­ence was launched on 24 Novem­ber at the Mar­riott Mar­quis in San Fran­cisco, Cal­i­for­nia. The con­fer­ence’s open­ing cer­e­mony started with a speech by Sheikh Salem Ab­dul­lah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Kuwait’s Am­bas­sador to the USA, who ex­pressed his grat­i­tude and ap­pre­ci­a­tion to His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah AlAh­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and to His High­ness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf AlAh­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

Am­bas­sador Sheikh Salem Al-Sabah ad­dressed the young stu­dents by say­ing: “Your pres­ence in the US is an op­por­tu­nity that is not avail­able to many as you are en­rolled in the most pres­ti­gious univer­si­ties world­wide. You should take ad­van­tage of your ex­pe­ri­ence so that we build a pros­per­ous and de­vel­oped fu­ture.” Am­bas­sador AlSabah also added: “The num­ber of Kuwaitis in the US reached its high­est level, you are part of our coun­try out­side the coun­try; you are Kuwait’s am­bas­sadors. Kuwait is wait­ing for your re­turn, it is wait­ing for you to in­vest what you have learned and ac­quired. Kuwait is proudly wait­ing for what you will be able to of­fer to our nation.”

Fa­had Al-Jadaan, the NUKS-USA Pres­i­dent, com­mented on this oc­ca­sion: “A con­sci­en­tious gen­er­a­tion for an everlast­ing nation is not just a slo­gan, but also a mes­sage that our val­ued at­ten­dees will carry back to our nation af­ter the con­clu­sion of this con­fer­ence.” Jadaan high­lighted the po­ten­tial that Kuwait with­holds and ex­plained: “There is no lack in the po­ten­tial of our youth, no lack in our em­ploy­ers’ readi­ness to in­vest in the youth and em­ploy them, and no lack in our women’s re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and ca­pac­i­ties.”

The speeches were fol­lowed by the night show, spon­sored by Gulf Bank, where ‘The Con­cert’ per­formed. This pop­u­lar mu­si­cal group in­cludes a mem­ber of the Gulf Bank fam­ily, Mo­ham­mad Al-Sar­raf.

Dur­ing the night show, Mi­jren Al-Mi­jren, As­sis­tant Man­ager at Gulf Bank, con­ducted the al­ways pop­u­lar and ex­cit­ing raf­fle with cash prizes.
