JEDDAH: The president of the Islamic Development Bank, Dr. Mohammed Sulaiman Al-Jasser, on Monday received the secretary-general-elect of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Hussein Ibrahim Taha.
During their meeting, Al-Jasser stressed the IsDB’s keenness to enhance cooperation between the two institutions in order to achieve their goals in supporting economic and social development in member states.
IsDB aims to build collaborative partnerships between communities and nations, across the public and private sectors.
The Saudi Press Agency reported recently that as part of an ongoing initiative by the IsDB Group, private sector representatives will meet in Tashkent to discuss and share post-pandemic business experiences.
The private sector forum will be held in the Uzbek capital on Sept. 2 under the theme of “Respond, Restore, Restart: Post-COVID Resilience and Prosperity for all.”
The forum’s main objective is to highlight IsDB Group activities, services, initiatives, and joint solutions in member countries.
It will provide a platform for networking and establishing partnerships with representatives from the business community, as well as a chance to share experiences, success stories, best practice, and explore investment and trade opportunities.
It will also discuss the future outlook to overcome the pandemic and highlight the IsDB Group’s $2.3 billion Strategic Preparedness and Response Program for COVID-19.
