The advisory board members agreed to renew the MoU for a further three-year term.

Intilaaqah Abu Dhabi, launched in December 2002, has nearly 200 graduates to date. Intilaaqah Abu Dhabi is based on the Shell LiveWire programme, an international initiative developed by Shell and launched in over 24 countries throughout the world. LiveWire is one of Shell’s many social investment programmes and has been running in the UK since 1982.

Speaking at the MoU signing ceremony at the Shell Abu Dhabi offices, Dr Mohamed Defrawi, Managing Director of Shell Abu Dhabi, said. “We are extremely pleased with the progress made over the last three years. This is wholly due to the co-operation of our partners and the calibre of the candidates. We look forward to another three years of success.”

Intilaaqah Abu Dhabi is available free of charge to UAE nationals aged 18-32 and aims at encouraging potential entrepreneurs to develop their own business ideas and start their own businesses.
