    The minister emphasised the significance of having such societies, which contribute to the students’ development and expand their options for more opportunities when they graduate.

    “There is no doubt that TAG-Knowledge has already opened the door to more opportunities for students thus, creating a new and ambitious generation to serve their society,” he said.

    The minister suggested setting plans for training courses that will cover information technology and other key issues and offered to take part in one of these courses in order to spread awareness.
