Al Habtoor Research Center in Cairo was launched in an exceptional opening ceremony. The event was attended by an elite of intellectual and cultural figures, officials, senior media professionals and experts specialized in various fields in Egypt and the Arab world. It is a leading and influential research center specialized in various political, economic and security fields.
Al Habtoor welcomed all attendees, expressing his pleasure to launch HRC in Cairo in the presence of prominent researchers and public figures. He stressed that his aim was to provide serious research services that help to promote the efforts of sustainable socio-economic development in UAE, his home country, and all friendly Arab states.
On choosing Cairo to host the Center, Al Habtoor said: "Cairo is a land of knowledge; it has knowledge and youth. Therefore, we open the Center here in Cairo to be a nucleus for all Arab youth, governments and decision-makers who can benefit from the Center's research and studies. It also provides an opportunity to train and educate a new generation of researchers." He noted that he decided to rely on youth as there are young people who have extensive expertise and experience, which would enhance the benefits as well as generation complementarity.
He added: "We are highly indebted to Egypt. It sent us teachers, schoolbooks, and experts in various fields. Our love for Egypt is deeply rooted in our hearts, souls, and minds. We hope that the Center would make great contributions to the Arab world at the time being, and to the whole world in the future."
Al Habtoor expressed his hope that the Center "would achieve prompt results for everyone through the official website, as well as the research and studies. I am pleased to receive feedbacks and proposals for improvement. We should listen to everyone to reach the highest level in research and benefit from all experiences."
