    "Today is the day of change in our performance, services and mission. It's our duty to initiate a 20-year plan for this Organization to become the leading organization in our fields of expertise worldwide similar to Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property (AGIP) which became the first ranking company in its quality services," HE Abu-Ghazaleh addressed the attendees.

    More than 200 executive directors, heads of departments and senior professionals representing TAG-Org's offices from around the world attended the meeting in addition to distinguished guests who enriched discussions during the venue.

    HE Abu-Ghazaleh stated that one of the principal plans for the coming years is to expand all the Organization's activities and businesses geographically to new territories mainly to Africa, East Europe, Latin America and Asia among others.

    He also highlighted the Organization's drive towards the utilization of Cloud Computing which basically depends on data transfer and archiving ending up in having TAG-Org's own cloud and to become the first provider of such a service.

    Moreover, HE Abu-Ghazaleh announced preparations to launch a Corporate Global Virtual Innovation University under the name "The University of TAG"; This academic institution will virtually offer education and training courses in the field of business to public and private sectors on the Arab world's level utilizing programs presented at Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Graduate School of Business (TAGSB).

    "The University will be distinctive in terms of its educational level, disciplines, languages in addition to the provision of a research center with special focus on business consultancy," he added.

    Abu-Ghazaleh addressed several professional initiatives launched by the Organization in the past along with other new ones to be introduced including: TAGIPEDIA, the specialized Arab content encyclopedia, the launch of the second edition of TAGITOP, the establishment of a research center at TAGSB, the launch of the TAG Concerto FM classical music radio station; and the establishment of a specialized corporate governance institute.
