In her address at the event, Ms. Samar AlLabbad - TAG.Global Deputy Chair, announced that TAG.Global, represented by its Chairman HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, has paid constant attention to providing education and capacity-building services at all levels, since it had been founded fifty years ago. She affirmed the Organization’s pride in working within the League’s Higher Coordination Committee of Arab Literacy Decade (2015-2024) team as a representative of the private sector. 

She added that since the objectives of the Arab Literacy Decade have been identified, TAG.Global introduced two programs that mainly focused on serving both the Alphabetical and Digital Literacy including the Arabic Fluency program and the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh International Diploma in IT Skills (TAG- DIT). Ms. AlLabbad also stressed the need for providing accredited programs in accordance with standards developed by the Committee to serve and to achieve the goals of the Arab Decade of Literacy.

Moreover, Ms. AlLabbad highlighted the importance of Digital Literacy,  which is imperative to find solutions and programs in the Fourth Industrial Revolution era, especially after the changes caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in terms of the use of technology in various sectors including education, health, food, and others.
