Due to the coronavirus pandemic and inability to travel, it has been decided to hold the Board and the General assembly meetings virtually in coordination with the Jordanian administration.
Arabsat is set to hold the 43rd session of its General Assembly meetings in the presence of the Arab Ministers of Telecommunications and Information as well as Heads of Delegations on April 16.
Arabsat had previously planned to conduct the General Assembly meetings in Jordan under the patronage of King Abdullah II, Ruler of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
In his message to the Ministers and Heads of Delegations, HH Eng. Muthanna Hamdan Al-Gharaibeh, Minister of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship, Jordan, expressed his best wishes to all Arab countries, adding that he hoped to meet all the delegates in Jordan in the future.
Speaking about the change of plans, Khaled bin Ahmed Balkheyour, President & CEO of Arabsat, added: On behalf of all Arabsat employees, I extend my sincere thanks to His Majesty King Abdullah II, King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, for his gracious patronage to the Arabsat General Assembly, where His Majesty used, since Arabsats foundation, to support, host and sponsor many of its media and technical activities. The most important item of the General Assembly meetings is to discuss the report of the board of directors, and to approve Arabsats financial final account in addition to its new projects.
