The Shura Council was represented at the meeting by HE Dr. Ahmed bin Hamad Al Muhannadi, member of the Council.
The meeting discussed a number of issues related to the establishment of the Parliamentary Working Group and its bylaws, its priorities and mechanisms of cooperation with similar groups in parliamentary unions.
The Parliamentary Working Group aims to form the first Arab parliamentary network in the field of science and technology to build bridges of cooperation and coordination and bridge the gap between the field of science and the parliamentary field in the Arab world. It also aims to increase Arab coordination and unify the position in international parliamentary meetings, and stimulate interest in science and technology in the Arab world, as the most important tools to pioneer the future.
