Special to AG-IP News Agency 

AMMAN - The Kuwaiti Diwan Al-Mulla Internet TV hosted HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, founder and chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Global (TAG.Global), in a virtual interview with Anchor Mohammed Al Mulla within ‘Diwan Al-Mulla’ program. 

During the interview, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh tackled a number of topics: economic, social and political, in addition to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, noting that “COVID-19 will remain as part of our life for a long time and it will only end when a 100% effective vaccine without any side-effects is found and is given to all people on this earth at the same time.”

Furthermore, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh believes that claims about holding China accountable for the outbreak of COVID-19 are groundless.He added that the coronavirus is similar to other epidemics attributed to viruses that appear and transform regularly and endlessly all the time. 

On the economic front, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh called on all countries to be prepared to coexist with this pandemic and plan and organize their life, businesses and activities on the basis that the virus will stay with us for a long time, by changing our daily practices in meetings and celebrations and by adapting to distance learning. “As a result of the Coronavirus spread, the world is heading towards digitalization in different fields mainly in economy and trade among others.”

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh called for finding alternative energy sources other than oil. “We will never run out of oil, as experts often warn, but the price fluctuations, mainly motivated by commercial purposes, are usually imposed by the US administration and international policies.”He said.

Regarding expectations about a war between the US and China, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh said that the US would resort to military action and spark a war, on the basis of American leaders’ belief that the importance of their military force lies in its being used. The other factor relates to super-power conflict on the issue of world leadership, that requires the two sides, the US and China, sit at the negotiating table and agree on a New World Order. That may need to be preceded by some kind of military confrontation, he explained.

During the meeting, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh recalled some memories of his work in Kuwait, where he started establishing his business, and from which he began  expanded to the other GCC countries and beyond; describing Kuwait as the cornerstone for the establishment of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Global and the starting  point of expansion worldwide. He acknowledged with deep appreciation the support he received from the great leaders of Kuwait as well as from the noble people of the country all along.
