Manama, August 3, 2013
General Organisation for Youth and Sport (Goys) of Bahrain has signed a partnership agreement with Tamkeen, the kingdom’s labour fund, to launch the fourth edition of an initiative, which comes in to support development of Bahraini youth.
Goys President of Hisham Al Jowder and Tamkeen chief executive Mahmood Al Kooheji signed the agreement towards holding Youth City 2030, which comes as part of the Bahrain Economic Vision.
Based on the agreement, the Youth City 2030 events for this year will take place in five major centres, which include a media center, a leadership development centre, an arts centre, a science center, and an information technology centre, which all together are expected to attract Bahraini youth whose interests and talents lie within those five key areas.
Al Jowder, stressed that the Youth City project, organised for the fourth year in a row, came as part of the initiatives of the leadership, which aim to provide the best conditions for youth and allow them to refine their talents and pave the way for them to actively participate in the development process of the Kingdom.
He also emphasised on the continuous positive collaboration and fruitful cooperation between the General Organization for Youth and Sports and 'Tamkeen', which has led to a positive impact on the progress of young people in the Kingdom, especially through Youth City 2030.
“This project comes to highlight the importance of youth participating through such distinctive initiatives, which is a significant step for them in order to take leading positions in different sectors, and effectively contribute to the development of Bahrain in this prosperous time,” Al Jowder added.
Al Kooheji said: "Tamkeen is always proud of its key role in supporting and empowering Bahraini youth through its various support programmes. Youth City 2030 is considered key amongst such programmes.”
"This national initiative is a continuation of our partnership with the General Organization for Youth and Sports, which has become in the past four years a key destination for future generations as it provides a growth-oriented environment, which allows them to materialize their creative thoughts and ideas,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
