Underlining its commitment to the community, 60 employees of GE teamed up with volunteers from averda, the largest environmental solutions providers in the Middle East and North Africa region and Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Ltd (GASCO) to clean up a section of desert farmland in the United Arab Emirates.
The head of GE in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey explains why talent is key to innovation: “The Middle East, North Africa and Turkey region is witnessing a great transformation across its social and economic fabric. Development has taken a grassroots shift, with the emphasis squarely on enhancing the quality of life of the people, creating jobs for its youth population and promoting a culture of research and development to create localized solutions. Increasingly, governments across the region place an unprecedented emphasis on innovation, as a priority, to help address the overall developmental goals for a better future.”

The school is the first fully accredited DP training school and vessel-control simulator in the middle east.
General Electric broke new ground when it launched the second phase of its high-tech GE Manufacturing Technology Center (GEMTEC) at Dammam’s Second Industrial City. The company also inaugurated a new and advanced pressure control facility, and signed a cooperation agreement with Wa’ed, Saudi Aramco’s new entity focused on financing and incubating new businesses in the Kingdom.
