    The Talal Abu-Ghazaleh International & Co. International (TAGI) has been given the green light by King Abdullah II Fund for Development (KAFD), to audit procedures for granting ten awards presented by the Fund for youth, innovation and development, and require two-year field visits to a number of Arab countries including Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Palestine and Jordan.

    TAGI's Executive Director, Mr. Mustafa Nasereddin welcomed the decision saying
    "This reflects KAFD's confidence in TAGI's services, which is a source of our pride, and is in line with Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization's mission in encouraging youth achievement, innovation and Arab capacity building."

    From his part, KAFD's Director General, Mr. Tariq Awad, stressed that auditing the award has become a necessity to ensure sound handling of the award to youth innovators and achievers, the ultimate goal being "the promotion of a positive change by awarding leading youth in the Arab world."
