AMMAN — Singers Mohammad Assaf and Farah Siraj will be guests of honour at the 35th International Arab Youth Congress, which opens in Amman on Monday.

The weeklong congress aims to enhance analytical thinking, decision-making skills and respect of cultural diversity under the theme of “innovation and leadership”, the National Centre for Culture and Arts (NCCA) said in a statement.

Young people between the ages of 13 and 17 from 16 countries will attend the event to participate in drama, dance, music, pottery and visual arts workshops, the statement said. A brainstorming session will be held to draft congress recommendations, which will be delivered to UNICEF and the Arab League, the NCCA said.

The congress is organised by the King Hussein Foundation's NCCA, in partnership with UNICEF and the Ministry of Education.
