Dr. Abu Ghazaleh to lecture at MIT on April 15th and Harvard on 16th

AMMAN – His Excellency Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh will head to Boston, US, to lecture at the SciTech Conference, hosted by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on April 15th. On the following day, he will be a guest at Harvard University, where he is scheduled to deliver another lecture.

Senior Media Advisor and Special Representative for International Strategic Communication at Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org), Mr. Khalid Dalal, said that the visit to MIT "comes upon an invitation by the Arab Students Organization (ASO) at the institute," where Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh, TAG-Org’s founder and chairman, will deliver the concluding remarks at SciTech Conference organized by ASO, during which he will present his vision of the future of technology in the world and its impact on human life worldwide.

At Harvard, Dalal continued, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh's visit to the world's most prominent educational institution comes upon an invitation from the Harvard Arab Students Association. In his lecture organized by the association and hosted at Harvard Campus, he will address university students shedding light on his distinguished success story and discuss prospects of cooperation between TAG-Org and the students association.

On the sidelines of the visit, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh will hold meetings to promote knowledge transformation in the Arab region, and how best to harness the abilities and knowledge of Arab graduates from international universities, especially those topping global ranking lists, towards that end.

Commenting on his planned US visit, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh said: "Time has come for qualified Arab alumni of the world's top-500 universities to take the initiative and contribute to transforming Arab countries into knowledge communities and knowledge governments".

In this regard, Abu-Ghazaleh, who will be accompanied during the visit by His Excellency Dr. Jawad Anani and Mr. Dalal, refereed to the post-WWII Marshall Plan for reconstructing war-devastated Europe, calling for the "need to carry out a similar program for knowledge construction in the Arab World, especially since the accelerating ICT revolution provides more of the necessary means and tools for knowledge-based rebuilding and development than it was available during the time of the Marshall Plan".
