He highlighted that the partnerships with the global specialized bodies in the fields of safety, security, and risk and crises management are considered one of the most important SAFE’s strategic goals. As a result, partnerships were built and cooperation mechanisms were developed with the relevant bodies internally and externally, noting that within record time, accreditations were obtained from global organizations and institutions.
