- The agreement seeks to better manage the knowledge resources of both parties and to launch knowledge-centric initiatives.
- The Foundation pledges to teach Arabic language to 150 non-Arab paramedics.
The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) has signed an MoU with the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services to strengthen the strategic partnership between the two and to cooperate in managing knowledge resources.
The signatories have also agreed to launch initiatives and organise research and knowledge forums, workshops, and conferences – each in their respective area of expertise – in order to create a corporate culture that encourages the exchange of knowledge. Both parties will work to enrich the other’s information network, support their knowledge-management programmes, and put their technical know-how and expertise at each other’s disposal to support knowledge development efforts.
The signing ceremony was attended by His Excellency Jamal bin Huwaireb, CEO of MBRF, and His Excellency Khalifa bin Drai, Executive Director of Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services.
H.E. bin Huwaireb reiterated the Foundation’s commitment to building effective partnerships with all government departments and private companies in the UAE in order to support its strategy to promote the production and dissemination of knowledge. This, in turn, helps build knowledge-based societies that undertake sustainable development projects and produce knowledgeable generations.
“By joining hands with the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services, we are looking to enrich Arabic content and release knowledge products, such as translated books and cultural events,” H.E. bin Huwaireb added. “The Foundation is working to design an intensive training programme to teach Arabic language to 150 non-Arab paramedics from the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services. This programme paves the way for future knowledge-based initiatives and programmes.”
Meanwhile, H.E. Khalifa bin Drai, was confident that the MoU with the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation will open new horizons for the exchange of knowledge and expertise. “The partnership will also develop the capabilities of both parties in the fields of science, culture, education, and knowledge,” H.E. said. “Teaching Arabic to non-Arabic-speaking paramedics will open many doors for them – as well as for the Corporation – and will allow them to deal with patients more easily, saving time and effort.”
H.E. bin Drai noted that the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services is keen to cooperate with all local government departments and private entities to achieve common goals, and to promote the interests of the UAE, as directed by the wise guidance of the country’s leadership.
The agreement states that the two parties will co-organise at least one annual joint event, in addition to forming a joint committee of representatives from both organisations to implement the requirements and objectives stipulated in the MoU, and to face any challenges that may arise in that regard.
