ALECSO Director-General pays visit to ASBU Director-General

H.E. Dr. Saud Hilal Al-Harbi, Director-General of ALECSO, held a meeting with H.E. Eng. Abdelrahim Suleiman, Director-General of the Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU), on August 29, 2018, at ASBU headquarters.
The meeting focused on ways to activate the cooperation agreements signed between the two institutions. Dr. Al-Harbi presented ALECSO’s plan for the promotion of Arabic language in the Comoros, which he had developed following his visit to the Comorian capital, Moroni, on August 13-16, 2018.
During this visit, Dr. Al-Harbi acquired first-hand knowledge of the urgent needs of the Comoros, a member State of ALECSO, whose government has made an urgent request for supporting Arabic language dissemination and meeting the needs of educational cultural and scientific institutions.
In this context, Dr. Al-Harbi requested the ASBU Director-General to assist in providing a mechanism for the broadcasting of educational/learning programs through technological means at a first stage. On his part, Mr. Suleiman expressed ASBU's readiness to broadcast the courses that ALECSO will produce for Comorian students.
It was agreed to promptly develop a project proposal in this regard, to be submitted to both sides, which will then be implemented in response to the immediate needs.
