    Umniah renewed this week its partnership agreement with the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Knowledge Society (TAG-Knowledge) for the second consecutive year.
    Under an agreement signed by Ihab Hinnawi, chief executive officer of Umniah, and Luay Abu-Ghazaleh, vice chair of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organisation (TAG-Org), Umniah will continue serving as the exclusive telecommunications provider to TAG-Knowledge.
    The signing ceremony was attended by British Ambassador Peter Millett and Talal Abu-Ghazaleh. A graduation ceremony was held on the sidelines of the event, where recognition certificates were distributed to participants from the Al Aman Fund for the Future of Orphans who completed the basic training programme aimed at preparing them to enter the work market.
    Luay Abu Ghazaleh commended Umniah for helping TAG-Knowledge reach its goals, spread knowledge in the Jordanian community, and hone local skills. Hinnawi affirmed Umniah’s dedication to strengthening its relationship with TAG-Knowledge.
    As part of the agreement, Umniah will continue to support the ‘Umniah and Talal Abu-Ghazaleh MBA Scholarship Initiative’ that extends academic scholarships to outstanding Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Graduate School of Business Administration (TAGSB) students, particularly students benefitting from the Needy Student Endowment Fund, thus helping them obtain their master's degree in any specialty offered by the TAGSB.
