Jusoor within their areas of work will contribute to the promotion of creating a culture of entrepreneurship and support the sector of small and medium-sized enterprises which integrates with the roles played by the government and all interested parties who are involved in the development and support of this sector."
"This cooperation will allow Jusoor to exchange experiences and knowledge with Sharakah, under this MOU, Sharakah will provide a number of specialised workshops within the Enrichment Program which Jusoor will begin to implement early next year and will continue for a full year," he added.

We thank and appreciate the wonderful efforts that Sharakah contributes in the development of entrepreneurship," Al Adi said.
Implementing this social educational project for the college students will enhance their abilities and knowledge of understanding the market.
