Sharjah Men’s College student Ahmed Saud Khalid Sultan Al Qassimi has been selected as one of four HCT students to represent the UAE in the upcoming World Economic Forum -- Learning from the Future conference that takes place later this month in Dubai.
Under the auspices of the British Council, universities and colleges were invited to nominate suitable candidates for the prestigious event scheduled for April 21- 24.
The British Council is bringing over 100 delegates from around the Arab world, the UK and a number of other countries to debate a range of issues which will be covered in the Regional WEF to be held in Sharm Al Shiekh next May.
The World Economic Forum -- Learning from the Future conference follows an earlier British Council program that saw a group of young people in the region attend a successful event in Greenwich and Davos earlier this year
This conference is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai in partnership with the Young Arab Leaders organization. The YAL group is the Gulf region’s foremost development platform for business, public sector and civil society leaders in the Middle East.
Selection for this auspicious meeting of young Arab leaders in the making is a big achievement for Ahmed and a major tribute to Sharjah Higher Colleges of Technology. “I am truly honored to receive this opportunity,” Ahmed said.
“I am hoping that it will open my eyes and my mind to new ways of looking at old problems. I enjoy challenges and this is a big challenge for me. I will be putting in my best efforts to use this opportunity as a chance to develop.”
