IASCA Participates in the "Youth Skills Needed for the Future" Forum


On the World Youth Skills Day

AMMAN - The International Arab Society of Certified Accountants (IASCA) took part in the discussion forum entitled "Youth Skills Needed for the Future", organized by Abu-Ghazaleh Knowledge Forum, under the patronage of HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, founder and chairman of TAG.Global, in conjunction with the World Youth Skills Day.

During the event, IASCA displayed through its booth various professional accounting pronouncements, offering special discounts on training courses the Society provides.

Moreover, the professional certificates; developed and consistently updated by IASCA, were introduced. The Society’s certificates aim at enhancing the youth’s professional competencies to bridge the gap between market needs and academic programs offered by Jordanian universities.

In his keynote address to the youth, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh underlined the significance of shifting from teaching to learning, stressing the importance of sharpening their skills and creating ideas and projects based on information and communication technology, noting that all kinds of information are available on the Internet, which creates equal opportunities for everyone. “If you are not a ‘knowledge worker’, and if you fail to utilize the Internet to serve your life and economy, then, you will have no place in this world in the future,” he said.

 Furthermore, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh affirmed that the world needs innovations and inventions in all sectors, especially since the world today passes through one of the most important phases of change in human history, which is the Knowledge Revolution which entirely relies on knowledge technologies.

For his part, TAG.Global Education and Youth Advisor and TAG-KF Executive Director, Dr. Fadi Daoud, welcomed the participating institutions, speakers and attendees from the various youth entities, affirming that the forum was held in conjunction with the celebrations of the World Youth Skills Day; marked on July 15 every year, after being endorsed by the UN General Assembly. Dr. Daoud, also, said that holding the forum comes in line with TAG-KF’s belief in the importance of training and equipping the youth with the skills required in the labor market. The event was held due to the commitment of the Form to its national role and mission in raising awareness, educating and creating a safe platform for dialogue among the youth.

At the closing, participants were honored with honorary shields for their national efforts in supporting the youth and equipping them with the necessary skills to engage in the labor market and provide job opportunities in different economic sectors.
