President of Tunisia Kais Saied gained an insight into the work and vision of Qatar Foundation as he visited its Education City campus on Monday.
During the visit, President Saied received an overview of the organisation’s education ecosystem, its focus on research, development and innovation, and its community development emphasis, during a balcony tour at the 2015 building (Qatar Foundation Headquarters).
During his time at Education City, the president also visited Qatar National Library (QNL), where he was welcomed by HE Dr Hamad bin Abdulaziz Al Kawari, Minister of State and president of QNL, and library officials.
He was given a tour of its main space and its Heritage Library, where he was shown the exhibition containing items of historical significance.
“Human empowerment is a very noble and meaningful mission as it harnesses potential and abilities that science was unable to reach,” said President Saied. “These efforts will continue and human potential will continue to emerge to benefit humanity as a whole.
“I congratulate Qatar Foundation for creating Education City, which attracts students from around the world and is a destination for academic expertise, as part of the continuous cooperation between universities and research institutes.
“Qatar Foundation’s mission of unlocking human potential is, in itself, evidence of its noble purpose. There is nothing more prestigious and noble than institutions that go beyond the traditional boundaries of countries and address humanity as a whole. Education City is a source of pride for Qatar Foundation and for all humanity.”
HE Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, vice-chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation, said: “We are honoured to have welcomed the President of Tunisia to Qatar Foundation and to have had the opportunity to share QF’s knowledge ecology and purpose.
“The mission of Qatar Foundation is intended to benefit not only the people of Qatar, but those of the Middle East and North Africa region and the world, and we are proud to contribute our part in humanity’s greater quest for knowledge.”
Dr Kawari said, “We recognise the Tunisian president’s commitment to the Arabic language, which reflects his strong belief in Arab culture as an embodiment of our Arab national identity.
“Preserving Arabic and Islamic heritage is an important aspect of the library’s mission. Our Heritage Library is dedicated to preserving and sharing Arab culture and emphasising the historical ties between our countries.”
