Enhanced Misk-Qiddiya internship program commences second intake 

Author: Thu, 2020-01-23 02:48 RIYADH: Sixteen interns were welcomed to the Qiddiya Investment Company’s (QIC) offices this week, at the start of the second internship program between Qiddiya and the Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz Foundation (Misk). The Misk-Qiddiya internship program was developed to create the Saudi workforce of the future, helping to bridge the current gap between education and employment. Building on the success of the previous year’s internships, the newly implemented initiative will last 28 weeks, with the goal of offering full-time positions. “Qiddiya is committed to training the Kingdom’s next generation and future leaders through a growing range of scholarships and internships that unlock new professional pathways,” said QIC’s CEO Mike Reininger. “Training young talent is an essential part of our plan to employ 25,000 people by 2030, benefiting from listening to fresh ideas generated by young Saudi talent.” Throughout the next seven months, each intern will be mentored by an executive director from QIC to assist in day-to-day tasks, learn new skills and receive valuable practical experience. The internship will also feature enrichment programs such as professional training and courses, in addition to industry visits to leading companies within Riyadh including Samsung.  Interns will also compete around the development of a project to win a weekend trip abroad with their family. Testing their creativity and business acumen, each student will be asked to solve an individual challenge currently facing Qiddiya and present their ideas to a panel of judges. Intern Hessa Al-Qassim said: “I’m very excited about the opportunity to work for one of the largest projects in the Kingdom which supports the Vision 2030.” “Qiddiya is helping young Saudis to fulfill their potential and be part of the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision,” added fellow intern Khalid Aldowayan. “We have a chance to help develop the entertainment sector right here in our homeland.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaMISKQiddiya Misk Art reopens Riyadh’s largest fine arts galleryQiddiya announces early readiness of new offices complex

DiplomaticQuarter: Pakistani expats see Saudi Arabia as ‘second home,’ envoy tells Tabuk governor

Thu, 2020-01-23 02:58 RIYADH: Pakistani expats considered Saudi Arabia to be “their second home” the south Asian country’s ambassador to the Kingdom has revealed. Raja Ali Ejaz was speaking on Monday during a meeting with Tabuk Gov. Prince Fahd bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, during which they discussed matters of mutual interest. Conveying his thanks to King Salman and the governor for the honor and respect shown toward the Pakistani community living in the Kingdom and Tabuk region, the envoy said: “Pakistani expatriates consider the Kingdom as their second home.” Pakistan Embassy officials told Arab News that during his visit to the region, Ejaz met with members of the Pakistani expat community, assuring them of embassy support and urging them to abide by local laws and regulations. “You are the ambassadors of Pakistan in Saudi Arabia and your contributions in the development of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are valued by both countries,” he said. The ambassador added that long-standing relations between the two countries had “stood the test of time” and were “getting stronger with every passing day.” During their get-together, Prince Fahd noted Saudi Arabia’s appreciation of the contributions made by Pakistanis toward economic development in the Kingdom and the Tabuk region in particular. The governor also acknowledged the significance of Pakistan’s religious and cultural ties with the Kingdom. Earlier, commenting on Saudi-Pakistan relations, Ejaz told Arab News that bilateral links between the two countries remained strong. “We have more than 2.2 million Pakistanis in the Kingdom. Pakistan’s prime minister has visited Saudi Arabia four times in less than a year and the Saudi crown prince also paid a visit to Pakistan last year which shows the strength of our cordial relations.” The envoy and his accompanying delegation also visited Tabuk regional museum where they toured its various exhibits.

Abdulqawi Al-Mikhlafi, who is the deputy governor of Taiz, expressed his appreciation for the Kingdom’s generous support to Yemen across all sectors over the past few years, particularly in the areas of health, the environment and development. Al-Mikhlafi said such efforts helped local authorities to deal with the many challenges they faced in providing comprehensive services to needy Yemenis. He added that the Kingdom’s support reflected the deep historical and cultural ties between the people of Yemen and Saudi Arabia, and he praised the Kingdom for standing by the country and its government for more than 50 years. Dr. Elan Abdul Haq, deputy governor of Taiz for health affairs, thanked KSRelief for its continued support for Taiz and Yemen, assistance he said had alleviated the suffering of millions of Yemenis during the ongoing conflict. The head of the Artificial Limbs Center, Mansour Al-Wazei, announced that the center would begin receiving patients soon, providing vital aid to amputees for whom prosthetics meant regaining the ability to live full and productive lives.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaYemenKing Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) KSRelief chief: Saudi Arabia largest donor to Sudan with $1.2bn aid
