With the conclusion of the conference’s activities, Alghanim Industries held a draw as part of the “Night Show”, and presented the winners with valuable gifts from X-cite.
Regarding Alghanim Industries’ sponsorship of this year’s NUKS conference, Head of the Corporate Communications Department at Alghanim Industries, Abdullateef Abdulazeez Al-Sharikh, said: “We participate in this conference every year because it is the largest gathering of Kuwaiti students in the United States, and it gives us an opportunity to interact directly with these exceptional students. We at Alghanim Industries recognize the importance of education, and that is why we dedicate many of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives towards it. We also continuously train and develop our employees through our inhouse learning and development department. We wish all of our students in the United States the best of luck during their studies and wish them success in their professional careers. Our youth have huge potential, and we would be happy to have them as Alghanim Industries interns or employees in the near future.”
