London, United Kingdom (15 November 2013) "- Samir Brikho, Chief Executive of AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has presented the award for Innovation in Education at the TAKREEM Arab Achievement Awards to Jihad Shoje'ah. The award ceremony was held in Paris last night (14 November).

Mr Brikho said: "I was honoured to present the award to Jihad Shoje'ah for his outstanding work. The business world needs to recognise the big part it can play in the development of young people, not only for their benefit but also for the future of society and industry. I am therefore delighted that AMEC is supporting the TAKREEM initiative and I personally feel privileged to be associated with the Innovation in Education award, something I feel strongly about.

"At AMEC we believe in attracting and developing industry's best talent and giving each individual the opportunity to grow and succeed. That applies to the Middle East, where we have worked for over 30 years and are still expanding, just as it does for every other region in the world where we work. By taking part in this event we hope we can help inspire the people of the Arab world to achieve their potential."

AMEC is a sponsor of the TAKREEM awards, which were founded by Lebanese broadcaster and philanthropist Ricardo Karam. Each year the awards seeks to identify and celebrate those Arabs who have excelled in their fields and to inspire others in their quest for cultural, educational, scientific, environmental, humanitarian, social and economic developments of the Arab world.
