The Secretary General also said that the comprehensiveness of the reports, clarifications, and data
for the centre’s activities and tasks is an important source of current and future Gulf projects. Albudaiwi praised the role and efforts of the centre’s employees in the distinguished preparation of many statistics and reports, and their continuous and permanent follow-up in updating these statistics.
