JEDDAH: British Prime Minister David Cameron has expressed his admiration for Dar Al-Hekma College's achievements and accomplishments, and its role in educating and empowering women in Saudi Arabia and the region.
He made the remarks during a visit to the college.
One of the highlights of Cameron’s visit to the college was the round table conference with selected students from the law program, and a few alumnae members.
"It was an inspirational session with a fascinating group of ladies, who will clearly do amazing things for the Kingdom and our world,” he said at the end of the conference.
The prime minister was welcomed at the college by the Dean, Dr. Suhair Hassan Al-Qurashi, members of the Board of Trustees, senior management, students and the faculty. “It brings us great pleasure and pride to host British Prime Minister David Cameron at our campus,” said Al-Qurashi.
Al-Qurashi said that among DAH’s various academic programs, it had the distinction of offering one of the best legal programs for women in the Kingdom.
