RIYADH: Prince Faisal bin Salman, chairman of the Saudi Research & Marketing Group, has emphasized the need for promoting a culture of social responsibility among the Kingdom’s business community.
“This is a superior culture that emanates from our human, religious and national values,” Prince Faisal said while opening a three-day exhibition on social responsibility at Four Seasons.
Prince Faisal, who is chairman of the Social Responsibility Council in Riyadh, commended the participating companies. “I am very happy to say that this nascent culture is spreading in the Kingdom through a variety of initiatives,” he added.
He said such programs would strengthen the private sector’s role as partner of state agencies in achieving comprehensive development.
“The formation of social responsibility councils in Riyadh and other provinces as well as the setting up of similar panels by civilian organizations in the field can be considered important steps in the right direction,” the SRMG chief said.
