In May 2014, GBSB Global Business School, together with the BBA International Consulting Group, organized a five-day international conference in which intensive and interactive legal training was provided to a delegation from Kuwait.
The Kuwaiti delegation consisted of top government and military officials, as well as chief executive officers and senior civil servants.
Under the auspices of Kuwait's Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Muhammad Al-Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah a delegation of 30 Kuwait government officials participated in the training which was delivered and organized by GBSB Global Business School in Barcelona.
The training was sponsored by the government of Kuwait in conjunction with the BBA International Consulting Group and the local government of Catalonia, Spain.
The conference underscored a multiplicity of approaches toward settling corporate disputes, involving governments, and enabled Kuwaiti participants to learn more about other countries' experience in resolving such disputes.
Mr Abdullah Al-Noumis, the director of audit affairs at Kuwait's public authority for housing mentioned during the press-conference that the training “dealt adroitly with how legal tactics could be used to resolve international disputes and corporate disputes and diplomatic disputes involving governments in a world made much tighter and smaller by globalization”.
The head of the Interior Ministry's Legal Affairs Department Major General As'ad Al-Rouwaieh said that Kuwait was keen on participating in events focusing on international legal affairs and implementing global legislations on issues connected to international disputes.
The conference discussed relations between the EU and the Arab world and how both regions affect each other in numerous aspects. It also dealt with the issues of the free movement of goods, products and services and people within the two regions.
Moreover, the conference reviewed ongoing historical variables and changes in the Arab world on political, legal, economic, and social levels in addition to the impact of these variables on Arab and Islamic economies, particularly on Kuwait and its growth and development programs.
During the conference, the participants had a chance to visit Catalan Parliament, Barcelona City Hall and some other official organizations.
