Author: GHAZANFAR ALI KHANSat, 2017-10-21 03:00ID: 1508541147043111100RIYADH: Saudi Arabia, which has extended SR54 billion ($14.4 billion) in humanitarian and developmental assistance to more than 80 countries in a year, ranks as the top donor among nations giving aid and assistance globally. “This represents a gross national income ratio of 1.9 percent, the highest achieved by any country,” said Abu Baker Mohammed, representative of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the UN, on Wednesday. Mohammed, who was speaking on the occasion of World Food Day, appreciated “the huge efforts, significant grants and humanitarian assistance that the Saudi government provides to the hungry, poor, and refugees worldwide.” He pointed out that the Kingdom gives high priority to issues of food security, rural agricultural development and migration by developing and implementing strategic initiatives within the framework of the National Transformation Program (NTP) 2020. “The FAO is proud of its fruitful cooperation with the Saudi Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture and the strategic partnership in providing technical and advisory support to implement the initiatives of the ministry,” said Mohammed. The FAO celebrates World Food Day each year to commemorate the founding of the organization in 1945. It is celebrated as an opportunity to show global commitment to the Sustainable Development Goal to achieve “Zero Hunger” by 2030. Mohammed said that global figures show an ever-increasing number of people have been forced to emigrate due to conflicts, hunger, poverty and climate change. “These factors affect the availability of the needed resources for a decent life … there are about 244 million migrants, while 763 million migrants are within their own countries,” he noted.

Author: ARAB NEWSSat, 2017-10-21 03:00ID: 1508541146983110200RIYADH: The joint naval exercise “Bridge 18” between the Saudi Royal Navy and the Bahraini Royal Navy in the Arabian Gulf ended on Thursday. The joint naval exercise included upgrading combat capability and professional performance in all types of naval operations; unifying the tactical concepts of command and control; and enhancing coordination procedures between the participating forces. The drills also contributed to increasing security and inspections in protecting regional waters and repelling any aggression. Several training events and activities were also carried out. Following the end of the exercise, the commander of the Eastern Fleet, Rear Admiral Fahd bin Abdullah Al-Ghafili, said that this exercise is an extension of a series of exercises simultaneously carried out in both countries. He said that these exercises aim to raise combat readiness and unify concepts and exchange of experience and harmony between the two countries in carrying out joint operations against any potential threat. “One of the most important mock drills was the training on conventional and non-conventional threats, as well as implementing operations to protect shipping lines and maritime security operations, including combating piracy and smuggling,” he said. He added the drills also included the protection of maritime infrastructure (port protection, offshore oil installations, naval bases). Rear Admiral Iyad Ali Al-Mannai of the Bahrain Royal Navy said that the exercise aimed to “raise the level of combat capability and professional performance in all types of maritime operations, unify the tactical concepts of command and control, and enhance maritime battle management procedures.” He also added that the visit and inspection exercises contribute to the protection of regional waters and to repel any aggression. Al-Mannai highlighted the importance of this exercise saying it “reflects the security and productive cooperation between the two countries to enhance the efficiency, sense of security and combat between the two forces in light of the royal navies’ capabilities in the two countries of cadres and advanced equipment.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi-BahrainSaudi Royal Navy and the Bahraini Royal NavyRiyadhJeddahManamaArabian Gulfrelated_nodes: Saudi navy has foiled terror attack on offshore oilfield — SPASaudi Navy ‘sweeping Yemen shores for Houthi mines’Two dead in Houthi suicide attack on Saudi navy patrol

Antigua and Barbuda PM seeks Saudi investment after hurricane

Author: ALICIA BULLERSat, 2017-10-21 03:00ID: 1508541147013110800SVETI STEFAN: Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne wants Saudis to visit and invest in his hurricane-battered country. He is considering bringing halal standards to the islands for the first time in a bid to attract more Arabs visitors. In an interview with Arab News, he said he had seen increased Middle East interest in real estate and tourism projects in his country which is emerging from the devastating impact of Hurricane Irma. “We are looking for high net worth individuals. We already have a lot of interest from Saudi Arabia.” He added: “I want to encourage Saudis to invest in our safe, vibrant country. We are open arms to all cultures and want to please. “We are open to suggestions and would look to build halal restaurants or hotels if that’s what Muslims want or need.” Browne rejected claims that the Caribbean islands are being propped up by “passports for sale” initiatives. He said: “I don’t see it as passports for sale. It’s an incentive for investment – it’s not a new concept. Europe has used it before. This is a competitive market. “If one country offers citizenship as part of the investment deal – such as the US or Canada – and another country doesn’t, they (investors) won’t invest. It’s just a unique selling point.” With many countries in the Middle East undergoing political turmoil, citizens of some countries have few visa-free travel options. As former British colonies and members of the Commonwealth, Caribbean island passports grant visa-free access to the UK and the Schengen Area, as well as numerous other countries. The country’s citizenship by investment program (CIP) has pumped around $500 million into Antigua and Barbuda’s economy since 2014 and has helped pay for social security, cancer treatment and a new hospital, according to Ronald Sanders, Antigua and Barbuda’s ambassador to the US. On Sept. 6, 2017, when Hurricane Irma swept through Barbuda, Browne saw most of his country’s buildings reduced to — in his own words — “literally a rubble.” At least 60 percent of the island’s residents were left homeless because of the disaster. Speaking on the sidelines of the Global Citizen Forum, Browne said: “Most of the impact was on Barbuda, so the economic impact on Antigua is minor. However, it’s an economic setback because the country is heavily subsided by Antigua.” The PM said tourism and real estate are areas that he really wants to push to investors. “We have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the actual climate itself is about 28 degrees all year round, and it hardly rains. It’s a great country for tourism and vacationing, it’s very peaceful and we enjoy a very stable political climate.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Antigua and BarbudaUN Secretary-General Antonio GuterresSaudi Arabiarelated_nodes: No tax on Saudi investments in Abu DhabiRussian-Saudi Investment Forum concludes with positive signalsShoura member urges 20% tax on Saudi investments abroad

Author: Arab NewsThu, 2017-10-19 03:00ID: 1508360451395989500TOULOUSE: Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH) and founding member of the Association of Space Explorers (ASE), participated in the 30th ASE’s annual conference, which was held in the French city of Toulouse and sponsored by Airbus, the French Space Foundation and others. The conference discussed several topics related to space technologies and science, as well as the latest developments in space exploration and sciences research. “Saudi Arabia is interested in communicating with the Association of Space Explorers through the King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology (KACST),” Prince Sultan said, “and there is a great scientific program in the King Abdul Aziz City for Space, which was blessed with the care of Prince Turki bin Saud bin Mohammed, president of KACST, who happened to be a participant on the main scientific team of the first Saudi trip to space in 1985.” He also pointed out that Saudi youths are exceptionally interested in the field of space sciences, its technologies and applications, and emphasized the importance of having Saudi astronauts take part in science and advanced technology research. “I look forward to seeing Saudi astronauts join the International Space Station and other important programs of this kind,” he added. The Association of Space Explorers granted Prince Sultan the Space Explorers’ Award and the association’s medal during its 27th conference, which was held in Beijing, China in September 2014 in recognition of his great efforts in the field of space, making him the first non-US and non-Russian member to receive this award and medal. Moreover, Prince Sultan is a founding member of the Association of Space Explorers (ASE), which was launched in 1985 and has more than 400 astronauts from 37 countries. The association provides astronauts with a forum for dialogue and communication, supports space sciences, promotes environmental awareness, encourages international cooperation in space exploration and provides scholarships in the field.

Saudi Arabia to vet use of Prophet’s sayings to counter extremism

Author: ReutersThu, 2017-10-19 03:00ID: 1508360451465990400RIYADH: Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, is to monitor interpretations of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) teachings to prevent them being used to justify violence or terrorism, the Culture and Information Ministry has said. In a decree, King Salman ordered the establishment of an authority to scrutinize uses of the “hadith” — accounts of the sayings, actions or habits of the Prophet that are used by preachers and jurists to support teachings and edicts on all aspects of life. The ministry said late on Tuesday that the body’s aim would be to “eliminate fake and extremist texts and any texts that contradict the teachings of Islam and justify the committing of crimes, murders and terrorist acts.” The body will be based in Madinah and overseen by a Council of Senior Scholars from around the world, according to the decree. The ministry offered no specific details of how it would work in practice. Militant groups such as Daesh and Al-Qaeda have used interpretations of hadiths — numbered in the thousands and pored over by scholars for centuries — to justify violence and to urge supporters to carry out attacks. Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said last month that thousands of extremist clerics had been dismissed, although he gave no timeframe. The ministry said the body would serve Islam by creating “a solid scientific reference to vet and verify the authenticity of hadiths,” which are second in importance only to the Qur’an in Islam. It did not say what form the reference would take. The decree issued by the king, whose official title is Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques — Islam’s most revered places in Makkah and Madinah — said the body would be chaired by Sheikh Mohammed bin Hassan Al-Sheikh, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, which serves as Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body.

A Saudi Arabian first: Spokeswoman at Kingdom’s US Embassy

Author: The Associated PressThu, 2017-10-19 03:00ID: 1508360451425989800WASHINGTON: As Saudi Arabia feverishly portrays itself as ready to join the ranks of modern, tolerant societies, the Kingdom has turned to a once-unlikely messenger — one of its daughters — to make its case to the West. On Fatimah Baeshen’s first day as the Saudi Embassy in Washington’s official spokeswoman, a royal decree was issued to lift a ban on women driving, starting next summer. Baeshen, the first woman to hold embassy post, is no stranger to life behind the wheel of a car. The Saudi-born Baeshen spent years living, working and studying in the US, affording an easy fluency in the routines of American life that many Westerners see as irreconcilable with the country she represents. “I’m a byproduct of the longstanding Saudi-US relationship,” Baeshen said in an Associated Press interview. “For years, Saudi students have been coming to the US to study. There are several Saudis that are like me, that are very comfortable and are able to fluidly go back and forth between cultures.” For Saudi Arabia, Baeshen’s appointment reflects an opportunity to try to revise a narrative that is sharply at odds with the kingdom’s ambitious plan to transform itself for the future. In addition to sweeping economic changes, “Vision 2030” calls for easing social restrictions as a younger generation prepares to take the helm. The Kingdom’s economic overhaul also means bringing more Saudi women into the workforce, with an eye toward creating more two-income households and weaning Saudis off of reliance on government perks. The official plan calls for increasing female participation from 22 percent to 30 percent. “Women across the board deal with different issues, regardless of where they are,” Baeshen told the AP. She said the driving issue shouldn’t obscure the fact that Saudi women have been productive members of society for decades. “The myopic focus of this element I think deters the larger perception of what Saudi women have really been able to contribute.” After attending the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, she wrote a thesis on Islamic financial regulation in secular markets while a graduate student at the University of Chicago. She worked in the Saudi Ministry of Labor and at the World Bank before joining the embassy. As a director at the Arabia Foundation, she wrote in Time Magazine earlier this year: “The change-through-confrontation approach is counterproductive to achieving our collective goal; force is too often met with the strongest of cultural resistance.” “Empowerment is about access, choice and control. Saudi Arabia has made tangible strides in the spheres of access and choice,” Baeshen said. “There are elements to be improved with respect to control.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaWashingtonSaudi embassy in Washingtonrelated_nodes: How the Saudi Women Can Drive poll was conductedSaudi women want to drive — and fast87,575 business licenses issued for Saudi women

Saudi women to take rightful place in new ports authority: Minister

Author: MOHAMMED RASOOLDEENThu, 2017-10-19 03:00ID: 1508360451445990100RIYADH: The Saudi Ports Authority will be a welcoming place for Saudi women to work, Transport Minister Nabil Al-Amoudi announced at the organization’s official launch event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Riyadh. Al-Amoudi confirmed that women’s empowerment is one of the goals of Vision 2030 and, as such, the ports authority will give them their due place. The minister, who is also chairman of the Saudi Ports Authority, on Monday, launched the organization’s new identity in the presence of a galaxy of key state officials, representatives from international ocean liner operators, freight forwarding agents, and investors in the Saudi ports. Al-Amoudi expressed his sincere thanks to King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the decision of the Council of Ministers approving the change of title from Saudi Ports Corp. to Saudi Ports Authority and also approving its articles of association. The minister added that the historic move reminded him of another decision by the Council of Ministers 43 years ago, when Saudi Ports Corp. was incorporated as an independent public organization whose chairman reported directly to the Prime Minister. That decision was made in anticipation of the key role to be played by the ports during the 1970s in meeting the requirements of the comprehensive development witnessed by the Kingdom during that era. He said: “The Saudi Ports Authority now aims to market its services to all countries on a larger scale with a view to building new partnerships with international companies who specialize in the ports business, and enhance the trust it has with all its customers.” Al-Amoudi said an electronic wallet system has been implemented on an experimental basis at the Jeddah Islamic Port and King Abdul Aziz Port in Dammam. This will enhance efficiency and facilitate the process of clearing goods in a timely manner in order to satisfy importers and exporters, he concluded.

Labor minister: KSA spends more on education than most OECD countries

Author: Arab NewsMon, 2017-10-16 03:00ID: 1508106744200760400RIYADH: “Human capital is the main focus of development in every society, and giving it sufficient attention is necessary for success and progress. Thus, Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 seeks to improve all aspects of the Saudi economy, with human capital development at the forefront,” Minister of Labor and Social Development Ali bin Nasser Al-Ghafis said during the opening ceremony of Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC) first HR forum, “Transforming HR: Enabling Vision 2030.” “Saudi Arabia spends more on higher education than most OECD countries, and this expenditure on tertiary education and training accounts for more than 7 percent of the government’s budget,” Al-Ghafis said. Al-Ghafis pointed out that human capital is the most valuable asset, which is why every firm strives for employee satisfaction and motivation in an attempt to increase productivity and performance through instilling the value of cooperation and developing a spirit of teamwork. “Saudi Arabia is taking bold action in this regard, such as those mentioned in the National Transformation Program (NTP) 2020,” he said, “including the development of quality standards as well as vocational and technical accreditation; providing citizens with the necessary knowledge and skills to meet the needs of the future labor market; creating decent job opportunities for citizens; developing the skills of the youth; and empowering women.” The minister explained that in order to achieve the objectives of the NTP 2020, the ministry has launched several initiatives that support employing citizens, among which are updating Nitaqat nationalization thresholds; developing a campaign for activity correction; redesigning the portfolio of HR development to make it support growth in private sector employment; supporting women’s work programs; introducing new regulations for home nurseries; and creating initiatives that will motivate and develop freelance and part-time work, and teleworking. “Organizing these forums is necessary for accomplishing the shared goal of comprehensive development. These forums are an ideal opportunity for exchanging knowledge and expertise, as well as discussing matters related to human resources. I look forward to seeing the outcomes of this forum applied to real life, which will act as important building blocks for ensuring the development of a strong economy and achieving the Kingdom’s vision,” Al-Ghafis said. He also praised SABIC’s role in bringing global HR development experiences to Saudi Arabia and commended the company’s experience in HR development.

Saudi Arabia ‘committed’ to promoting, protecting human rights

Author: Arab NewsMon, 2017-10-16 03:00ID: 1508106744130759800NEW YORK: Saudi Arabia is fully committed to its efforts in promoting and protecting human rights, said Abdul Aziz Al-Assem, the first secretary of the Kingdom’s permanent mission to the UN. “We must emphasize the importance of cooperation between countries and international organizations to promote human rights principles while taking into account cultural and religious diversity across countries,” Al-Assem said in his statement at the UN. He added: “Saudi Arabia was keen on strengthening and maintaining its cooperation with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) through a memorandum of understanding (MoU) and the specialized human rights programs. The Kingdom has also signed a memorandum with the UN to train experts and build Saudi capacities in the field of international human rights law, especially with regard to the UN’s mechanisms.” “The Kingdom has guaranteed women full rights under Islamic law and has given them the opportunity to contribute to human, economic and cultural development … Saudi women have achieved a lot lately, such as increased job opportunities, better education, an expanded participation in the economy, being allowed to engage in all business activities, playing an important role in national dialogue events, and participating in the media and medicine,” he said. Moreover, he pointed out that there is a 20 percent quota for women in the Shoura Council (30 members), and women have the right to run for and vote in municipal elections, and are now allowed driving licenses. “Saudi Arabia gives great attention to families and children, which are the most important axes of sustainable development. We have dedicated a hotline through which women and children can report domestic violence and have established the National Family Safety Program, which aims to protect families and children,” he added. “The Kingdom is a member in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child; thus it established the National Committee for Childhood, which collaborated with several agencies to prepare and carry out a series of preventive, educational and training programs in the area of child protection,” Al-Assem explained. “These programs are part of a joint project between the committee and UNICEF, which the Saudi government has supported with $750,000.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaRiyadhJeddahUN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR)related_nodes: Arab human rights bodies condemn chemical weapons threat against Qataris on Qatar TVSaudi humanitarian role through King Salman Center laudedSaudi humanitarian organization helps repatriate Somalis trapped in Yemen

Evaluation of psychological needs a major step toward providing high-quality breast cancer treatment: Consultant

Author: Arab NewsSun, 2017-10-15 19:19ID: 1508078282978440200JEDDAH: Prof. Ahmed Ali Saadeddin, consultant in clinical oncology and clinical tutor at the Department of Adult Oncology at King Abdul Aziz Medical City, National Guard Health Affairs in Riyadh, said that “the psychological needs of breast cancer patients should be divided into a wide range of social, psychological and physical responsibilities for both the patient and her family. The evaluation of these needs should be a major step toward providing high-quality treatment, without focusing just on drug therapy.” In an interview with “Laha Magazine” online, Dr. Saadeddin stressed “the importance of significant improvements in the results of breast cancer treatment regarding the awareness of the patient and accomplishing better and more specialized methodology in the use of treatment, as well as the advances in research for understanding the mechanism of the resistance against such treatments.” Dr. Saadeddin clarified that 65 percent of Saudi women who were diagnosed with advanced stages of breast cancer benefited from recent advancements in treatment which renewed their hopes of restoring a normal life, because the authorized drugs for this disease do not necessitate the hospitalization of patients, and hence they help protect them against the psychological effects caused by previous drugs. “Cancer is not just a disease,” Dr. Saadeddin added, “it is a group of complicated and different diseases; hence, it depends on the nature of the cell, the speed of the spread of cancer, and the nature of the patient.” As for treatment, Dr. Saadeddin noted that, in the last ten years, the rate of recovery of some tumors reached 90 percent, while the rate of recovery from others was just 5 percent. “But in developed countries, the rate of recovery from breast cancer reached more than 95% within a short time, and some patients did not even need chemotherapy.” Dr. Saadeddin also stressed that the case of each patient is different: “Therefore, the treatment is quite different, and the expectations are different. This message should reach everyone clearly.” But the most important message from Dr. Saadeddin is to avoid a full mastectomy. “We should use chemotherapy before mastectomy … It is better to avoid this, but if inevitable, it should be done by a specialized medical team, taking into consideration the aesthetical issue which is very important in developed countries.” Dr. Saadeddin concluded that “10 percent of breast cancer cases are hereditary, but it is, in the end, a genetic disease.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi womenBreast Cancer Awareness Monthbreast cancerpsychological treatmentrelated_nodes: 5 breast cancer facts women should knowSaudi breast cancer survivor: A story of hope and faithNew gene test to determine breast cancer risk
