09 December 2018

The Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC) sponsored a group of students of Bahrain Universities to take part in the 13th Annual Forum of the Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) in Dubai, UAE.

The event was held on the theme, Achieving Transformation and Investment, at the Madinat Jumeirah, between November 27 and 29.

GPIC President Dr. Abdulrahman Jawahery said the initiative comes in line with the directive of the Board, its concern for the Company's corporate responsibility efforts to provide students with an opportunity to increase their knowledge and improve skills.

Dr. Jawahery said they believe in the importance of knowledge sharing through a combination of academics and experience as well as practical and scientific skills.

He said this contributes to a general culture of nation building. He added this was also an opportunity for the students to compare what they have studied to the actual work as well as benefit from others’ experiences.

The president said GPIC is in constant contact touch with Bahrain’s Schools, Colleges and Universities and coordinating with them to set up appropriate training programmes for students to take part in such events and to inform them of standards and procedures applied locally and internationally to expand their knowledge and skills.

He said the initiative is one of the most important steps taken by the company towards its commitment to community responsibility. The company also sponsors several programmes to create future leaders in line with what Bahrain needs.
