Bahrain calls for correcting Arab joint action


In his address to the 34th session of the ALO, being held in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, the minister said the desired reform should involve new approaches and creative mechanisms to enhance the Arab joint action.

The ALO and the other Arab organizations should tap all Arab human resources, especially from the Arabian Gulf area, as well as the latest scientific and technological achievements, in order to enhance socio-economic development in the Arab area, he stressed.

Meanwhile, Director General of the Arab Woman Organization (AWO) Wadoda Badran urged, in her speech to the event, all Arab organizations and mechanisms to work together to enhance joint action and achieve a comprehensive advancement.

She hailed endeavors of the ALO and AWO to push forward joint action and coordination.

For her part, regional executive of the International Labor Organization (ILO) Nada Al-Nashef called for exploiting all potentials and work out a clear-cut practical strategy for Arab socio-economic development.

As developing countries, the Arab ones face challenging problems in their pursuit for socio-economic development.

The problems were further exacerbated by wars and internal conflicts that threaten the gains of long years of development, she underscored.

The war launched by Israel against Lebanon in early 2006 added to the challenges of the Arab region and the international community should deal with its repercussions urgently, she cited as an example.

As part of the UN system, the ILO give priority to supporting the production factors in Palestine, protecting immigrant workers, and creating jobs for youths, she pointed out.
