Bahrain elected IFTDO chair for second time
Bahrain's Dr. Ebrahim bin Khalifa Al-Dossary was elected Board of Directors' Chairman of the International Federation of Training and Development Organisations (IFTDO), on the sidelines of IFTDO's general assembly.

IFTDO is the most multinational, multicultural training and development organisation in the world. Its members form a highly diverse network of human resource management and development organizations globally, linking HR professionals in HR societies, corporations, universities, consultancies, government organisations and enterprises.
IFTDO currently represents more than 500,000 professionals in over 30 countries.
In his comments, Al-Dossary voiced deep pride, as a Bahraini citizens, to be elected to such a prestigious post, noting that he will spare no effort in order to promote Bahrain and project an honourable image of its strides in the fields of training and human resources development.
He lauded the tremendous efforts exerted by the kingdom, under the leadership of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, in order to boost the capabilities of Bahrainis, which, he said, has enhanced their distinction in various fields, at the regional and international levels.
