Eng. Sheikh Salem Bin Sultan Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Chairman of the Department of Civil Aviation â€” Ras Al Khaimah, honoured the late Taryam Omran Taryam and Dr Abdullah Omran Taryam during the 7th Global Pioneerism, Innovation and Excellence Conference.
The memorial shields for Taryam Omran Taryam and Dr Abdullah Omran were received by Taryam Al Muhairi. Taryam Omran Taryam, who along with his brother Dr Abdullah Omran Taryam, founded the news powerhouse Dar Al Khaleej.
Â The honouring ceremony was held in the Cultural and Scientific Association on Sunday with the participation of 300 people from all over the world.
Prominent figures from the first generation were also honoured during the 2-day conference including Consultant Ibrahim Bu Melha, Abdul Ghaffar Hussain, Sultan Al Owais and a group of thinkers and intellectuals, who enriched the Emirati and Arab national work in general.
A number of distinguished people in pioneerism and innovation from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, Albania, Italy, India and Kosovo were honoured as well.
The conference began with a speech by Sheikh Salem, in which he said: â€œI welcome you to this conference, which is being held in co-operation with the Global Knowledge Exchange Foundation.
It saddens me that we miss today a dear colleague and friend we knew in all our previous conferences.
He was James Chang, CEO and President of Global Knowledge Exchange Foundation, who passed away suddenly at his residence in New York a few weeks ago.â€ â€œLeadership is a word that everyone is competing for, excellence is a demand that we all aspire to and innovation is a tool to achieve both, hopefully during this conference.
Undoubtedly, our GCC countries have made a remarkable stride in these areas, thanks to the directives of their political leaders to accelerate sustainable development at all levels.
The achievements that we have accomplished globally today are the best proof of that. The Hope Probe raises the name of the UAE in space, Saudi Arabiaâ€™s city of Neom fascinates the world, Doha hosts world athletes, Bahrain carries on its leadership in Formula, Kuwait is the first to establish the artistic movement and Oman still has its unique mixture of originality and modernity,â€ he added.
â€œTo support this blessed march, we devoted this conference to presenting live examples of practical experiences or what is known as â€˜Best Practice.â€™
Over four sessions, more than 30 sustainable development pioneers spoke about the most prominent stations in their professional career, and the lessons learned from them, so that the children would be familiarized with the experiences of the fathers to benefit from the experiences of these prominent people that are honored today.
We congratulate the pioneers who will be honored today and thank the association for hosting the conference,â€ he said.
