AMMAN — HRH Crown Prince Hussein on Tuesday met with UAE minister of state for youth affairs and president of Emirates Youth Council, Shamma Mazrui, over means of cooperation and expertise exchange between Crown Prince Foundation (CPF), the council and the Arab Youth Centre.

During the meeting that was held at Al Husseiniya Palace, Crown Prince Hussein and Mazrui highlighted the importance of such cooperation in empowering both countries’ young people, enhancing their leadership skills and encouraging them to engage in innovation and entrepreneurship, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The Crown Prince commended the brotherly ties between Amman and Abu Dhabi, praising UAE‘s initiatives that seek to empower and support youth to play their deserved part in the advancement of their country.

He also emphasised the importance of investing in young people’s potential and providing them with opportunities to participate in the development process.

In another meeting at CPF, in the presence of Prince Hussein and Mazrui, Nour Abu Al Ragheb, acting CEO of the foundation, delivered a presentation on the CPF’s operation, programmes and initiatives, as well as efforts to enhance leadership skills and excellence of the Jordanian youth.

For her part, Mazrui outlined some of the Emirates Youth Council’s initiatives and educational and training programmes.

CPF in February signed a memorandum of understanding with the council aimed at enhancing cooperation at various levels, especially youth-targeted projects and exchanging expertise related to youth empowerment.

In an interview with Petra, Mazrui expressed her aspiration to develop cooperation between CPF and the UAE-based Arab Youth Centre, so as to create interactive platforms for both countries’ youth, and Arab young people in general.


Abu Al Ragheb said that the Emirati minister’s visit will contribute to exchanging expertise between the two entities, where some success stories of CPF were reviewed during the visit.
