CMC chairman leading delegation to Tehran
A Central Municipal Council (CMC) delegation headed by its chairman Saud al-Hinzab is visiting the Iranian capital, Tehran. The visit comes in response to an invitation from Baqir Sakhai, chairman of the Qatar-Iran Friendship Committee. The visit aims to facilitate the exchange of experiences pertaining to various municipal affairs and their role in development. The CMC team will get introduced to a number of urban development advancements and municipal services in Tehran. The CMC team would also look to further develop friendly relations among the parties concerned to help boost forward mutual co-operation efforts in fields that improve the lives of inhabitants in the country, such as basic services, roads and the strategy of municipal councils there and the way they function.
The council has conducted a number of similar visits to different cities around the world to benefit from their experiences.
MoU with US university
The headline for the report on the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in the United States, published on Page 10 of Gulf Times on September 11, wrongly mentioned the council as SEC. The error is regretted. The MoU is part of SCH’s efforts to broaden its scope of partnerships with leading global academic institutions in order to improve the skills and professional capabilities of its health professionals.
