KUWAIT CITY, March 30, (KUNA): Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Muhammad Al-Jabri stressed that enclosing all youth sectors under the Public Authority for Youth (PAY) umbrella will develop the youth work in the country. In a press statement Saturday, Al-Jabri noted that this decision will help officials to carry out their tasks, especially in light of the adoption of the National Youth Policy.
Transferring the dependency of these sectors to the Authority comes to activate Article 13 of the Law 100 for the year 2015 on the establishment of the Kuwaiti Youth Authority as well as it ends the overlap of competencies in the field of youth ministries and government bodies, which contributes to rationalize spending and achieve the desired benefit, he added. He noted that the Board of Directors of the Authority adopted at its 15th meeting the vision of the Authority based on strengthening partnership, cooperation and coordination with the State bodies and civil society, as well as the private sector incubating youth.
PAY is concerned with supporting youth and developing all the services provided to them to enable them to participate in the service of their society to achieve development and leadership especially that the most important pillars of the vision (New Kuwait 2035) is a creative human capital represented by youth, the statement quoted YPA’ Director General Abdulrahman Al- Mutairi as saying.
PAY Board of Directors held its 15th meeting last Wednesday under the chairmanship of Minister Al-Jabri and the attendance of all the members. Meanwhile, a number of Kuwaiti lawmakers on Friday lauded outcome of the 12th regular meeting of heads of GCC legislative and shura assemblies.
The conference is one of the fruits produced by efforts of the GCC states, particularly the efforts that had been made by His Highness the Amir for tackling the Gulf rifts and maintaining the Gulf home, the MPs affirmed. Holding of the meeting constitutes “an emphatic proof of the solidity of the Gulf home,” said MP Rakan Al-Nisf, undersecretary of the parliamentary caucus, in remarks to KUNA.
Deliberations during the freshly concluded meeting addressed diverse topics concerning the Gulf and issues that would be tackled at forthcoming parliamentary meetings, he added. Dr Odah Al-Ruwaiee, Secretary General of the caucus, said the main feature of the meeting was presence of top legislators of all GCC member states, adding that the talks addressed sustainable development, youth affairs, defending the Palestinian people and the Golan Heights.
MP Mohammad Al-Dallal stated that the convention final communique refl ected its success in narrowing the gap and making coordination toward local, regional and international affairs. “Qatar’s presence (in the meeting) alongside the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain was delightful news for GCC citizens,” he said. MP Ali Al-Degbasi said the conference succeeded in embodiment “of our slogan our Gulf and destiny are single.” Arab and Muslim nations desire to see the GCC persisting with the member states’ leaders tackling any obstacle obstructing cooperation among the member countries. His fellow lawmaker, Adel Al-Damkhi, lauded His Highness the Amir efforts for ironing out the inter-GCC differences.
