DUBAI: The 11th Ship for World Youth Global Assembly started late on Sunday at Etihad Museum, Dubai. Being held in Dubai for the first time, the leading international event has attracted over 150 youth from 25 countries.

Welcoming the delegates, Dr Aisha Bin Bishr – Director General of the Smart Dubai Office, said, “We strive to drive human life for the better, making Dubai a global hub for smart solutions and technologies which the Emirati youth will lead in the near future, and we will showcase our experience at this event and share our latest findings.” Ibrahim Abdul Malik, Secretary-General of General Authority of Youth and Sports Welfare, said that the World Youth Ship Global Assembly is a great addition to reinforce the UAE’s position as a global youth hub.

“Youth are the world’s leaders in the future and the UAE government has established a unique experience and approach aimed at elevating and empowering the youth sector through ambitious programmes that boost their talents and administration and leadership skills as well as their knowledge. The UAE government hails the active role of the government of Japan in supporting such initiatives that promote the spirit of tolerance and cohesion among cultures of different countries, thus enhancing the role of youth in cultural communication,” he said.

Kaori Nakamura, director of the International Youth Exchange affairs of Japan Government, said that the UAE was the best choice for the 11th Ship for World Youth Global Assembly as it will be a new fresh start for the programme in the coming years.

“The UAE is a country where past meets future in a melting pot for tens of cultures from around the world which affirms that the UAE is the land of peace and coexistence,” she said.

Adnan Khoury, Chairman of the Organising Committee, called on all participants to look carefully at Dubai’s pioneering experience. “History will mark its achievements in various fields. We are thrilled to see the UAE host this massive event,” he said.

He stressed the Emirati youth’s participation supports the assembly’s role in increasing cultural and civilizational communication among nations and confronting all relevant challenges in the future.

Before the launch of the event, the participants toured the museum which reflects the splendour of the UAE’s past and ancient heritage that is deeply rooted in history. Participants expressed their great appreciation of the history of the UAE Union which established this glorious country more than four decades ago.
