Alba chairman to take part in Bahrain dialogue
Manama, July 4, 2011
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) chairman Mahmood Hashim Al Kooheji will represent the company at the on-going Bahrain National Dialogue.
The selection of Alba to take part in the dialogue is a re-affirmation of the company’s commitment to the kingdom’s social, economic and political stability, a statement said.
Al Kooheji said: “We would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa for undertaking this noble initiative of launching the National Dialogue. We are confident that it will play a key role in facilitating dialogue between communities, allow free exchange of views and opinions without any preconditions, and foster greater social, economic and political stability.
“I am greatly honoured to represent Alba at the National Dialogue, and to be given the privilege of presenting the company’s views on strengthening Bahrain’s economy and boosting its industrial growth. As a company that exports over 45 per cent of its products outside Bahrain, we do believe that the success of the National Dialogue will benefit the industry and mark a new phase in ensuring greater stability on the industrial front.”
In addition, two of Alba’s employees will be participating in the National Dialogue. Ali bin Ali will represent the Alba Labour Union and the head of recruitment and organisational development Rawdha Salman Alaradi will represent the Bahrain Society for Training and Human Resources. – TradeArabia News Service
