The importance of creating and sustaining a knowledge-based society and the critical role reading has in establishing and maintaining that society was emphasized at a ceremony held Friday to recognize this year’s winners of the national iRead competition.

More than 1,000 people attended the awards ceremony in Dhahran for the Saudi Aramco-sponsored program, which just concluded a fourth year. The initiative has been run by the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture since its inception.

“It is hard to have successful human communication among individuals, institutions, and people without building a communication of deep understanding that is established and reinforced by a reading habit,” said Saudi Aramco president and CEO Amin Nasser, adding it is through this habit that “pillars of respect, peace, and the socio-economic and developmental cooperation between human beings” can be established.
