On this occasion, Passant Fouad, Head of External Relations at Juhayna, said: “I feel proud to have received this award, as a confirmation of our leadership in the development projects stemming from our strategy that aims to improve the societies in which we work and support the most needy groups.”
Fouad added that such initiatives represent an important incentive for the private sector to present solutions to the most important issues and topics to continue achieving sustainable development, which contributes to the integration of the efforts of the Golden Triangle represented by the government, civil society and the responsible private sector, in order to provide all possible means of support to support the state in its development projects to achieve Sustainable growth.

Juhayna’s development role also extends in times of crisis, as the company is keen to implement the idea of responsible investment by basically maintaining the health and safety of employees, and to ensure business continuity, in addition to implementing its role towards social responsibility, through targeted initiatives that focused on supporting the community during the pandemic.
