MANAMA, April 25: Director General of Kuwait's Public Authority for Youth (PAY) Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi Tuesday stressed the importance of drawing up appropriate plans and strategies so as to serve Gulf youth and enhance their potentials.
Speaking to KUNA while partaking in the 34th meeting of GCC undersecretaries of sports and youth ministries, Al-Mutairi said such plans and strategies contribute to developing Gulf societies whose youth make up a large parentage.
The State of Kuwait has submitted a proposal during the meeting aiming to launch a program for outstanding students at schools to take part in national days held in GCC member states, he noted.
