King Abdulaziz Center for National Dialogue launches Web site in English

Last week, the King Abdulaziz Center for National Dialogue launched an English-language version of its Web site, the Arab News reported today.

The site, http://www.kacnd.org/eng/, provides an overview of the activities and background of the center, which was established in 2003 to promote dialogue among Saudis on important issues.

“The complete English version is still under development, but we hope that non-Arabic speakers get a full picture of the center’s various activities,” spokesman Saeed Abu Melha told the Arab News.

In the past two years, the center has held five forums, most recently in Abha in December. Preparations are currently underway for a sixth forum, and details are expected to be announced in the next few weeks.
