Geneva - A UN trade and development conference was briefed yesterday on the humanitarian and development initiatives launched by UAE in support for underprivileged countries of the world. Addressing the on-going UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva, Maitha Rashid Ghadeer, member of the UAE Federal National Council, called on the social and economic sectors to support development without wholly depending on governments which sometimes could not assume their role due to lack of resources.

Speaking about the Dubai Cares campaign which launched by Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to provide primary education to one million children in poor countries, she said that 'The charity education drive is a shinning manifestation of the UAE proper care for development locally and internationally.

Meanwhile Ghadeer also attended the 117th session of the international Parliamentary conference and the 181st session of the governing council of the International Parliamentary Union. Commending Dubai Cares, the UNCTAD secretary general appealed to the participating parliaments to review the UAE charity experience at the 12th UNCTAD conference scheduled to be convened in Ghana next year.
