Bahrain, UAE in deal to promote youth sports
Manama, February 7, 2014
Baharain will take part in more youth and sports events hosted in the UAE following the signing of an agreement, said a report.
The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed at the biannual GCC Youth and Sports conference held at the Gulf Hotel yesterday.
General Organisation for Youth and Sport president Hisham Al Jowder met his Gulf counterparts to discuss projects aimed at the youth.
The deal was signed by Al Jowder and the UAE's General Authority of Youth and Sport Welfare secretary-general Ebrahim Abdulmalek.
"The MoU will allow youth from either Bahrain or the UAE to take part in local programmes that each country hosts," said Abdulmalek.
"In the UAE we have a couple of events that we have requested Bahrain's youth to attend, which they will - this is the main objective of the agreement. This is mainly for the youth sector, but in case we need it, the agreement allows each country to utilise the expertise of the others," he stated.
"It will allow for the exchange of expertise, knowledge and information, which is all part of the agreement," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
