Message from the UN Secretary-General on the launch of the Arab Info. Mall
16 November 2005
The Arab Info. Mall was officially launched during the World Summit on Information Society (WSIS), with messages by Kofi Anan, UN Secretary-General, Tarek Kamel, Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Egypt and Ismail Serageldin, Director, Bibliotheca Alexandrina and Chairman of the Arab Reform Forum. The Arab Info. Mall
is a project inspired by the recommendations of the first Arab Reform conference held at the BA in March 2004. The tri-lingual (Arabic, English and French) web portal provides participating organizations with a kiosk or boutique inside the mall where they can exchange information and observe what other organizations are doing to create strong partnerships. It is envisaged as a tool of the Arab Reform Forum to further the cause of democracy, freedom and peace through support of civil society efforts towards reform and dialogue in the region.
