The President of the Palestinian Motorsport and Motorcycle Federation has paid tribute to the Arab Council for Touring and Automobile clubs for its ongoing assistance in furthering the club’s goals.

Khaled Qaddoura told yesterday’s meeting of ACTAC that the body’s aid, and particularly that of its chairman Dr Mohamed Ben Sulayem, on all matters concerning the federation has been of great value. He thanked Dr Ben Sulayem for his support in the development of the club and for his assistance with the club’s recent successful admission to FIM. He presented the ACTAC president with a commemorative plaque in appreciation of his efforts.

Dr Ben Sulayem then told the meeting that further assistance for clubs will be provided early next year at a new workshop to be held in Qatar. “This will help clubs share information and knowledge so they can learn from each other,” he said. “It will also strengthen co-operation between the leaders and top management of the Arabic-speaking FIA clubs. Additionally, the workshop will help clubs define strategic solutions to overcome differences, to engage in road safety initiatives and to support FIA Action for Road Safety.”

Finally, the ACTAC chairman asked all the council’s members to put forward representatives involved in road safety in their country for the new Masters degree in Road Safety Management at St Joseph’s University in Lebanon. The Beirut university course, aided by the Renault Foundation, is aimed at Middle East and Gulf State countries and will work towards the resolution of an identified and increasing road safety problem in the region.
