Bahrain Crown Prince calls for action
Manama, March 19, 2009
A call for action to change Bahrain's future for the better went out from Crown Prince and Economic Development Board chairman Shaikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
The call came as he urged government officials to push ahead with the Economic Vision 2030 blueprint unveiled last year for a new Bahrain.
'Vision 2030 is not just a slogan, it is a call for action that will change the future of the kingdom,' said the Crown Prince.
He urged under-secretaries and chief executives of government organisations to take the lead in delivering the ambitions of Bahrain, as declared in Vision 2030 and the National Economic Strategy.
The Crown Prince was speaking at the inaugural National Strategy Workshop at the Gulf Hotel yesterday.
He highlighted the main principles of the Vision 2030, as launched by His Majesty King Hamad.
The Crown Prince said he valued the governmental efforts to support the Vision 2030 very highly and thanked Prime Minister Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa and Deputy Prime Minister Shaikh Mohammad bin Mubarak Al Khalifa for their support.
Shaikh Mohammad, who attended the workshop, confirmed that the government had already started to put in place the strategic and executive plans which are needed to achieve the aspirations of the King.
'The overall strategy goal is to build a better life for every Bahraini,' said Shaikh Mohammed.
The workshop was a signal to start the implementation of the National Economic Strategy.
Those attending the event discussed the strategic initiatives and how to effectively co-ordinate the efforts across the government to build a better life for every Bahraini.
EDB deputy chief executive Dr Zakaria Hejres said the main message behind the workshop is to strengthen the co-ordination and communication between ministries and government organisations.-TradeArabia News Service
