SHARJAH, December 29, 2016

Sharjah Tatweer Forum (STF) and Sharjah eGovernment have recently signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed towards further promoting the Sharjah Leadership Program (SLP).

Under the terms of the agreement, both parties have committed themselves to working closely together to achieve fruitful cooperation, common goals and reinforced cooperation to promote sustainable development.

The STF as a first partner and Sharjah eGovernment as a second partner will implement initiatives and programmes aimed towards disseminating a culture of innovation and encourage young people to develop leadership skills.

These would also include scheduled site visits to the Sharjah eGovernment headquarters to introduce SLP candidates with the latest developments and trends in smart, e-governance and information technologies. In turn, Sharjah eGovernment will support and sponsor SLP via helping enhance its goals, promote it accordingly and nominating potential candidates to take part in the programme.

Sheikh Khalid Bin Ahmed Bin Sultan Al Qasimi, director general, Sharjah eGovernment, said: "The new partnership between STF and Sharjah eGovernment is a value-added strategy to the march towards excellence and leadership--especially in the field of rehabilitating, training and developing citizenship. The partnership comes in line with the objectives of Sharjah's budget for 2016, which has allocated a large share to promote local programmes aimed at achieving sustainable development and providing an integrated and attractive work environment for new graduates and competencies of citizenship.”

“The new strategic cooperation with Sharjah eGovernment helps in moving our joint efforts forward, towards building a better and brighter future for the community of citizens and residents in Sharjah in line with its vision to improve the process of training and development of leadership competencies for the youth,” said Jassem Albloushi, chairman, STF.

 “As a government, we are optimistic about this new partnership as both STF and Sharjah eGovernment share the vision and goals to achieve the aspirations of empowering youth and providing them with the skills and knowledge that qualifies them optimally—allowing them to take over the helm and the completion of the process of change and enhance the development of Sharjah.”

The STF has recently launched the fourth edition of SLP, which aims to enhance the capabilities of the competencies of citizenship and enhance the spirit of innovation and creativity, knowledge and leadership through its candidates, in accordance with the objectives of the national strategy for innovation and Vision 2021.

The programme, which started in mid-November 2016 and will continue to May 2017, is being organized under the patronage of Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah and the honorary president of STF. – TradeArabia News Service
