Brothers and sisters members of WSTA and colleagues
I have been honored by my distinguished Brothers, Members of the Board of Directors to chair this Board and while I am not the best, but their confidence gives me the determination that, I shall make all the efforts in serving this Association which was chaired by competent friends who gave their time and effort in order to continue their valued contribution to the Association, Thereby they deserve our appreciation and praise.
At this juncture, the Association expects from all of us in the Board to double efforts so that we can first, maintain the gains that have been achieved and then consolidate these achievements in furthering the aims, objectives and aspirations of WSTA.
Today, there are enormous activities and programs such as conferences, training courses and workshops which are conducted in our region. However, we should aspire to intensify and diversify our activities and offerings to better meet the needs and demands of the governments and the private sectors in the Gulf Cooperation Council. We should also aim to uplift our tools and means of reaching our members by harnessing modern technology and social media.
In conclusion, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to all Government officials working in the water sector in the member states and the General Secretariat of the Gulf Cooperation Council. I would also like to thank all international organizations, research centers, public and private entities, the media and WSTA members who have contributed and continue to supporting WSTA and its activities.
I hope that we can all work together towards a better future for the management, development and conservation of water resources in our region.
God bless you all,,,,
