The invitation was made during an introductory seminar hosted by the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) in its premises on Monday. During the seminar, a delegation from the SCCI gave a detailed explanation of the new category that was added recently to the Sharjah Economic Excellence Award, which is issued by the Sharjah Economic Excellence Network (shjSEEN).

 

A number of executive officers from major companies representing various economic sectors took part in the seminar, which was also attended by HE Rabah Abdulrehman Al-Rabah, Director General of Kuwait Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI), and Mr. Salah Khalil Ayadeh, Manager of External Affairs in KCCI, along with Jamal Bu Zinjal, the Director of Media Department at the SCCI, and Nada Al Hajri, shjSEEN General Coordinator, in addition to representatives of media outlets from Kuwait and the Gulf Region.

 

HE. Rabah Abdulrehman Al-Rabah, Director General of KCCI welcomed the Sharjah Chamber delegation to Kuwait, commending the visit as a signal of the strong ties and constant communication between Kuwait and UAE.

For his part, Mr. Salah Khalil Ayadeh, Manager of External Affairs in KCCI said: “We are confident this visit will achieve its goals by inviting all GCC entities to take part in the Sharjah Economic Excellence Network Award.” “The prestigious award,” Ayadeh continued, “is based on quality standards, working ethics, and enhancing the private sector’s CSR as per the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) model. It also aims to encourage environment friendly practices and develop the role of the business community in promoting sustainable development via facilities, projects and initiatives that inspire an ongoing success and appreciation of accomplishments”.

 

 

Motivating creativity

H.E. Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, Chairman of SCCI, said that organizing this seminar highlights the Sharjah Chamber's commitment to contributing to strengthening, bolstering, and developing relations between the UAE and Kuwait in a sustainable manner to serve their mutual interests.

 

Al Owais affirmed that the SCCI is always committed to coordinating with other chambers and federations in the Gulf in order to enhance the integration of the Gulf private sector in global economy by developing its establishments, capabilities, and performance in various sectors, and by enhancing the standards of quality, entrepreneurship, and innovation.

 

He also pointed out that holding this seminar in coordination with the Kuwait Chamber shows their mutual commitment to motivating private companies in various economic sectors to be creative, in addition to contributing to advancing and developing the Gulf business societies by encouraging them to improve their competitiveness.

Al Hajri said that for the past 26 years, the SCCI has been committed to supporting businesses that seek excellence in achieving sustainability, which is why it launched the Economic Excellence Award program. The Award provides SME in various economic sectors in the Emirate with the expertise and strategies needed to apply the best global practices in their work. This was reflected positively on many entrepreneur projects.

 

She explained that the award is a non-profit initiative designed to help private sector establishments in the GCC region to improve their performance. This was facilitated by the adoption of the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM), a comprehensive management model employed by more than 30,000 establishments around the world. It also provides a non-strict framework for building a comprehensive study for any establishment regardless of scale, maturity, and sector.

 

Al Hajri went on to note that for the past 20 years or so, the excellence model has been the primary plan for the EFQM members and for establishments in Europe and elsewhere for building the culture of excellence, employing good practices, promoting innovation, and improving results.

 

She also explained that this model helps establishments focus on the needs of principal patrons by learning innovation, improving performance, and improving the executive officers' ability to make the right decisions. Many of the establishments that adopt EFQM have become a role model for other establishments.

 

The SCCI started promoting the Top 10 GCC Business award category with an introductory tour in the GCC; starting from Kuwait then moving on to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Oman.

 

The category covers major private sector facilities in the fields of industry, trade, retail, real-estate, tourism, hospitality, construction, financial services, transport, logistics, education, health, and digital services.
