Kuwait City, January 6, 2013
Kuwait-based United Real Estate Company (URC) has signed a memorandum with Real Estate Association (REA), to explore opportunities to develop and conduct a series of training programmes throughout the year.
The courses will include a broad range of topics related to the real estate sector and will be taught by international institutions, a statement from the non-profit organisation said.
Mohammed Ahmad Al Saqqaf, URC’s chief executive officer, said: “This agreement introduces a great number of new opportunities for employees in Kuwait’s real estate sector. The training programmes we are jointly developing with REA will enhance the skills and knowledge of real estate professionals and be of practical use to them in developing their careers.”
“URC’s corporate social responsibility strategy is designed to contribute to our society by actively promoting learning and growth opportunities, and today’s agreement with REA helps to underline our commitment in this area.”
“Real Estate Association is pleased to cooperate with URC by signing this memorandum,” Ahmed Fares Al Dowhees, secretary general, REA, said. “The agreement emphasizes URC’s belief in the importance of training programs in areas of real estate development.”
Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences will have a prominent role in supporting these training programmes by communicating with the REA and URC during the next phase, the statement said.
In line with the requirements of the development strategy, REA has extensive experience in managing and implementing development programmes and is committed to providing activities and programmes to increase skills and knowledge in the real estate sector. – TradeArabia News Service
