HH Sheikh Mubarak Fahad Al Salem Al Sabah has been presented with an award for Outstanding Achievement by Arabian Business, at a special ceremony held in Kuwait’s Salmiya Palace.
A leading member of the Kuwaiti royal family, Sheikh Mubarak received the award from Ali Akawi, CEO of ITP Media Group.
Sheikh Mubarak was one of just eight individuals selected by Arabian Business for outstanding achievements over the past three decades – also marking the 30th anniversary of ITP Media Group. The other winners received their awards in Dubai last year, but the Sheikh was unable to travel at the time.
Ali Akawi said: “As a senior member of the Kuwaiti ruling family, he has worked closely with the Emir of Kuwait in promoting tolerance and unity not just in the Arab world but the entire world. He has also been one of the Arab world’s top philanthropists, working endlessly to help support foundations for cancer patients.”
Akawi added: “This award is not only well deserved but long overdue.”
The other recipients of Outstanding Achievement awards were: Yusuff Ali, Lulu Group; Colm McLoughlin, Dubai Duty Free; Sunny Varkey, GEMS Education; Mohamed Alabbar, Emaar Group; Mohammed AlShaya, Alshaya Group; Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi and Munib Masri, chairman of Edgo and PADICO.
