AMMAN – Senator Talal Abu-Ghazaleh will head to Boston to deliver a lecture at the SciTech Conference, hosted by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on April 15. On the following day, he will be a guest at Harvard University, where he is scheduled to deliver another lecture.

The visit to MIT "comes upon an invitation by the Arab Students Organisation (ASO) at the institute," where Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh, founder and chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organisation (TAG-Org), will deliver the concluding remarks at SciTech Conference organised by ASO, during which he will present his vision of the future of technology in the world and its impact on human life worldwide, according to TAG-Org Senior Media Advisor and Special Representative for International Strategic Communication Khalid Dalal.

At Harvard, Abu-Ghazaleh's visit to the world's most prominent educational institution comes upon an invitation from the Harvard Arab Students Association, according to Dalal, who added that the senator will outline in his lecture his success story and discuss prospects of cooperation between TAG-Org and the students association.

On the sidelines of the visit, Abu-Ghazaleh will hold meetings to promote knowledge transformation in the Arab region, and how best to harness the abilities and knowledge of Arab graduates from international universities, especially those topping global ranking lists.

Commenting on his planned US visit, Abu-Ghazaleh said: "Time has come for qualified Arab alumni of the world's top-500 universities to take the initiative and contribute to transforming Arab countries into knowledge communities and knowledge governments".
