World Bank Chief Executive Officer Kristilina Georgieva announced on Friday an exceptional award handed to His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah in recognition of his support of economic and social development worldwide, and global peace.

This came at a press conference announcing the award in Washington DC, attended by representative of His Highness the Amir, Finance Minister Dr Nayef Al-Hajraf. This is another recognition by an international organization of His Highness the Amir’s endeavors to helping people and countries in need. The UN named His Highness the Amir a “Humanitarian Leader” in September 2014.

Georgieva revealed World Bank Vice-President for the Middle East and North Africa Ferid Belhaj would be visiting Kuwait on April 28-30 to present an official commemoration to His Highness the Amir in person. The occasion is unprecedented and is the first time the World Bank bestows such recognition upon a world leader.

It comes in appreciation for His Highness the Amir’s globally-recognised role in supporting political, economic and social stability in addition to his tireless efforts in assisting people in need around the world. His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah congratulated His Highness the Amir for the award.

The World Bank honoring deservedly crowned the march of giving and humanitarian efforts of His Highness the Amir and the generous people of Kuwait across the Arab and Muslim nations and worldwide, His Highness the Crown Prince wrote in a cable to His Highness the Amir. The world’s most prestigious organizations recognized His Highness the Amir as an icon of peace and humanitarian action, he said. His Highness the Crown Prince expressed pride in the leadership of His Highness the Amir who affirmed the eminent status of the State of Kuwait at the international level.

Minister of Amiri Diwan Sheikh Ali Jarrah Al-Sabah expressed, on behalf of His Highness the Amir, gratitude to the World Bank for offering this special award in recognition of his support to social and economic development in the Arab region and beyond.

The World Bank honoring reaffirms the eminent status of His Highness the Amir and the State of Kuwait in the eyes of the international community and comes in recognition of relentless efforts to foster humanitarian causes at the regional and international levels, the minister said. He cited the numerous humanitarian initiatives launched by His Highness the Amir to alleviate the suffering of needy people in crisis-hit areas. His Highness the Amir is deeply grateful for the World Bank Group’s kind and unprecedented award, and is looking forward to the visit of Belhaj to Kuwait later this month to present the official commemoration, the minister added. Parliament Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim said the award “is yet another international recognition of His Highness the Amir’s humanitarian work.”

He said His Highness the Amir dealt with politics as a mean of helping others, and boosting cooperation and transparency. His Highness the Amir has been focusing on “the human being and his suffering … and the humanitarian intervention policy in addition to development policies for many developing countries … which have been highly recognized by international institutions,” said Al-Ghanim.
