GCC panel to take up Omani sustainable development proposal

Muscat: The GCC Parliamentary Coordination and Foreign Relations Committee (GCC-PCFRC) agreed on the proposal submitted by the Sultanate through Majlis Al Shura about the role of legislatures in achieving the goals of sustainable development.
The Committee decided to include the proposal in the agenda of the 12th meeting of the heads of Shura, parliaments, national and Ummah (nation) councils, scheduled to be held tomorrow.
This came during the 11th meeting of the Committee, organised by the Saudi Shura Council in cooperation with the Omani Majlis Al Shura and the GCC General Secretariat, held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The proposal included the rationale and objectives of the study as one of the important issues that touch the concerns of the Gulf citizens at this time.
The memorandum reviews important dimensions that should be highlighted when researching the subject to reach practical visions and recommendations for establishment of stable rules for sustainable development in the Gulf Arab States.
Majlis Al Shura’s delegation included Sheikh Ali bin Nasser Al Mahrooqi, Secretary General of the Council, Dr. Hamoud bin Ahmed al Yahyai, Head of the Committee on Services and Social Development and a number of officials of the Secretariat General of the Majlis Al Shura.
