Kuwaiti Young Engineers Committee (KYEC) at the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) has held its annual meetings at the headquarters of UNESCO in Paris with the attendance of representatives of some global youth organizations.
In a statement to KUNA on Friday, the committee's chairwoman Zainab Al-Qorashi said that the meeting reviewed the committee's work and what was implemented from the youth forum's recommendations held in Abuja.
The gathering, she added, also focused on the committee's efforts and future plans to participate in the global conference due in Japan next year. The committee announced that special youth engineering events in cooperation with UNESCO and the WFEO would be organized, she said, noting that these events will be launched from Kuwait within the upcoming period. The conferees commended the Kuwaiti committee, as a first youth-orientated one at a global organization that works under the supervision of UNESCO, she added, pointing out that it was established four years ago.
Al-Qorashi underscored the significance of the active presence of Kuwaiti youth at the international forums and their interactions with their counterparts from other countries.
She added that such interactions are in favor of "our youth" by exchanging expertise and holding dialogues with other people from other cultures.
