The conference is organized by the SCCI from 14 – 15 October at the Expo Centre Sharjah.
Outstanding Participation of Youth
HE Mohammad Ahmed Amin Al Awadi, SCCI’s Director-General, expressed his happiness with the remarkable participation of youth in the 6th edition of the conference, whether at the UAE level or Gulf level, pointing out the conference agenda is containing a number of other pioneering initiatives which will be unveiled soon.
Al Awadi noted that the “Youth District” initiative, which will be inaugurated on the first day of the conference, is an idea of the SCCI Youth Council.
“The concept of this initiative is to dedicate two main sites for youth within the conference with the aim of enhancing values and reinforcing skills of youth by providing the necessary tools for this purpose. These two sites are acting as a platform for communication, connecting minds and ideas and simulating the current developments, especially those related to youth,” added Al Awadi.
He went on saying: “The Youth District will include a youth ring that brings together the GCC youth, with the participation of an elite of decision-makers under the title “Areas of Digital Skills and Specialties for the Digital Economy Markets”. This session will be headed by HE Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, SCCI’s Chairman, with the participation of HE Dr. Sami bin Abdullah Al-Obaidi, First Vice-President of the Federation of GCC Chambers, Chairman of the Council of Saudi Chambers, HE Dr. Tariq Sultan Bin Khadim, Chairman of Sharjah Directorate of Human Resources, HE Mohamed Ali Musabbeh Al Nuaimi, CEO of Mawarid Group and Chairman of RAK Chamber of Commerce & Industry.”
The youth ring will discuss to what extent youth is interested in knowledge economy markets, the role of educational institutions in introducing the knowledge economy markets among other curriculums and job opportunities available to youth in this sector, in addition to addressing youth needs and requirements.
“Moreover, the Youth District will feature 6 workshops, through which important youth topics will be tacked, as well as the entrepreneurship future and digital impact on youth business. A well-equipped meeting room will be dedicated to youth and those who support their issues to learn more about the best practices in various fields,” he explained.
“The Youth District is a platform for all gulf youth to showcase their successful experiences. Through this initiative, six workshops will be organized to discuss a host of youth-focused topics including entrepreneurship and the digital impact on youth businesses.
A special meeting hall equipped with the latest technologies will also be allocated to hold youth meetings, review the best international practices and discuss various challenges facing this segment by some of the top experts, consultants and decision makers from GCC countries”, said Maryam Saif Al Shamsi, Assistant General Director, Support Services Sector of the SCCI.
The conference is considered as the largest forum of its kind for the private sector and is organized collaboratively with the Secretariat General of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Federation of GCC Chambers and Arab Labor Organization.
Through this conference, the SCCI aims to contribute to developing gulf business communities, enhance the Chamber’s economic role and promote its competitiveness including its human resources and innovations of other GCC citizens.
This can be made by exploring means of stimulating Emiratization in the gulf private sector institutions and motivating the private sector to entice youth and entrepreneurs to help them develop their experience and administrative and technical potential.
