KFH Par­tic­i­pates in IASTE Con­fer­ence

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait Fi­nance House (KFH) par­tic­i­pated in the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion for the Study of Tra­di­tional En­vi­ron­ments (IASTE) 2016 con­fer­ence held at the Col­lege of Ar­chi­tec­ture, Kuwait Univer­sity un­der the pa­tron­age and pres­ence of the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Min­is­ter of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Dr Mo­ham­mad Al-Fares.

KFH’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the fif­teenth Con­fer­ence of IASTE 2016 themed “Le­git­i­ma­tion of Her­itage”, stems from its en­deav­ors to main­tain the cul­tural her­itage of the coun­try, and comes as part of its so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and ef­forts to be present at the cul­tural events and fo­rums that serve in rais­ing the name of Kuwait high on the lo­cal and world lev­els. It is worth not­ing that the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion for the Study of Tra­di­tional En­vi­ron­ments (IASTE) is head­quar­tered at the Uni­ver­si­ties of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley and Port­land in the USA. The IASTE holds its con­fer­ence once ev­ery two years. The col­lege of Ar­chi­tec­ture at the Univer­sity of Kuwait has been as­signed to or­ga­nize this in­ter­na­tional event that hosts nearly 200 schol­ars and sci­en­tists.

Shield of Honor was in­tro­duced from the Univer­sity’s of­fi­cials rep­re­sented by Dean of Col­lege of Ar­chi­tec­ture Dr Omar Khat­tab and Dr Mo­hammed Al-Jas­sar to Ex­ec­u­tive Man­ager Group Public Re­la­tions and Me­dia at KFH, Yousef AlRuwaieh in recog­ni­tion of KFH’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the con­fer­ence that re­flects the bank’s keen­ness to sup­port the ef­forts of the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions. They praised KFH’s ini­tia­tives and con­tri­bu­tions in sup­port­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties of Kuwait Univer­sity which reaf­firms its pi­o­neer­ing role in as­sum­ing the so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity.
