Kuwait’s EQUATE Petrochemical Company has participated in the graduation ceremony of the 38th Summer Training Course for University and High School Students by Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR), reported Al-Bawaba.

EQUATE is the country’s first international joint-venture in this industry, and this is the 15th consecutive year EQUATE has sponsored this training course, embodying its “Partners in Success” slogan with KISR.

The ceremony was under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Mohammad Al-Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, the Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and acting Minister of Information and State Minister for Your Affairs.

Trade Arabia quoted Mohammad Husain, Equate’s President and CEO, as saying: “Our partnership with KISR includes a number of fields and topics relevant to the sectors of training, specialised studies and industrial development.”

“This training course is part of those initiatives and is considered one of the most important annual activities that are sponsored by Equate,” he said.

He added, “In addition, during 2010, Equate signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with KISR for collaboration in research relevant to the petrochemical industry, its industrial applications and technological tools. Without any doubt, developing human resources who represent the cornerstone of sustainability is the main objective of this partnership”.
