KUWAIT, Oct 22 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti Eng. Manar Al-Hashash will deliver a speech at the opening session of the UN-sponsored World Summit Award Global Congress of 2013 on the e-content and creativity, to kick off in the Sri Lankan Capital, Colombo on Wednesday.
"The World Summit Award Global Congress of 2013 has invited me to be one of four speakers at the opening session of the conference," Al-Hashash said in statements to KUNA via phone.
Al-Hashash, who has a long and rich experience in e-content production, said she will deliver a speech at the opening session, chair a session in the second day and a workshop in the third day of the conference.
The WSA Global Congress 2013 will be held in Colombo from October 23 to 26 with the participation of the world's best e-Content developers, government representatives and leading ICT experts.
The conference's objective is to present the most creative mobile and web applications from all over the world and to discuss the crucial role of e-Content for the global economy, environment, government, healthcare, education and mobility.
The Congress will also put a special focus on social entrepreneurship and the role that internet and mobile phones play in reaching the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs are eight concrete goals to eradicate poverty and inequality worldwide. They were set in 2000 by the UN and should be reached by 2015.
"It will include an award-giving ceremony," Al-Hashash told KUNA, adding that award-winner Kuwaiti project "Beatona" or (Our Environment) will be honored during this ceremony.
