Dubai, September 15, 2005: The Kanoo Group, the leading diversified business conglomerate in the United Arab Emirates, was commended by the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ADCCI) for their commitment towards Emiratisation. In a prestigious awards ceremony held at ADCCI, Mr. Mohamed Omar Abdullah, Director General of the ADCCI, awarded The Kanoo Group a Certificate of Appreciation for their participation in the highly successful Summer Training Programme â€" Tamkeen 2005.

The objective of the Tamkeen Programme was to empower students with knowledge about the practical working environment. The Kanoo Group was among the five high-profile local organisations to participate in the programme along with the ADCCI. Students were able to interact with the participating organisations, with the ADCCI acting as the intermediary between the students and the organisations.

“The Kanoo Group has always been at the forefront to support the Emiratisation Programme. Their commitment to Emiratisation is outstanding. I commend The Kanoo Group for their efforts in this direction.� Mr. Mohamed Omar Abdullah, Director General of the ADCCI said.

Speaking on the Tamkeen programme, Mr. Mishal Kanoo, Deputy Chairman of The Kanoo Group explains, “Tamkeen is an ideal programme which helps to empower students with business knowledge. The future of our youth is a responsibility we take very seriously and so we are extremely proud to be a part of such an innovative programme. We want to encourage Nationals to hone their skills and gain knowledge and experience to fit into the Corporate environment.�

The Kanoo Group’s participation in the Tamkeen Programme further reiterates their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, a commitment already proven by the success of The Kanoo Group’s own Emiratisation Programme, Shababona.
