HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah honors winners of Kuwait e-Award

KUWAIT, June 5 (KUNA) -- Under the auspices and attendance of HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, an event was held at Bayan Palace to honor the winners of the third and fourth editions of Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences' (KFAS) e-Award.
The celebration was also attended by HH the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Deputy Minister of the Amiri Diwan Affairs Sheikh Ali Jarah Al-Sabah, and senior state officials.
After the opening ceremony, KFAS Director General Dr. Adnan Shihab-Eldin delivered a speech praising His Highness the Amir for his sponsorship of the award since its inspection in 2008, affirming that the event had led Kuwaiti youth to utilize their potentials to create and develop within the context of Information Technology (IT) Using the latest communication devices and software will impact people's social and economic development; however, the same technologies could be used in a negative manner leading to regression, said the director.
Kuwait e-Award focused on global standards to achieve the country's development goals, said Dr. Adnan, noting that an agreement was signed with the World Summit Award (WSA), part of the UN-Global Alliance for Information and Communication Technologies and Development (UN-GAID), to ensure that e-Award was up to such standards.
Dr. Adnan stressed that the e-Awards would have not been a success without the involvement of the Kuwaiti leadership. Such support led to praise from the World Summit for Information Service (WSIS), affirmed Dr. Adnan.
The Director also lauded His Highness the Amir's gesture to honor former Director of KFAS, the late Dr. Adnan Al-Aqaeel, saying that such sentiment reflected Sheikh Sabah's strong desire to honor those who helped in the development of society and the youth.
Under the guidance of His Highness the Amir, KFAS will continue to serve society, said Dr. Adnan who added that the foundation current objectives were to technically support Sabah Al-Ahmad Center for Giftedness and Creativity, the Scientific Center, and Dasman Diabetes Institute.
Dr. Adnan revealed that an agreement was signed between KFAS and the Health Ministry early Tuesday to support operations at the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah molecular imaging center, an institute dedicated to diagnosing cancerous and cardiovascular diseases.
After the conclusion of the speech, His Highness the Amir proceeded to honor the winners of the Kuwait e-Award. (end) gta KUNA 051633 Jun 13NNNN
