Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud has been named as the recipient of first IIR Middle East Business Achievement Awards Lifetime Award for Outstanding International Contribution by a Middle East Business Leader.
This prestigious award has been given in recognition of his contribution to making the world a better place by fostering better East/West relations, providing aid in times of crisis and alleviating poverty and other forms of suffering throughout the world.
“There can be no more worthy recipient for such an award,” says Event Director Alan Kelly. “Prince Al Waleed has a long and proud record in each of the areas covered by the award criteria.
“Here is a person who has continually used his business acumen and successes to directly help others.
“For example, who could forget that he was the single largest individual contributor to help out those affected by the Indian Ocean tsunami, giving more than some nations; and his ongoing support for disaster victims across Africa.
To create better understanding between East and West he has financed major Islamic studies in the US and one of his most recent projects has been his support for a new Islamic Arts wing at The Louvre in Paris.
The announcement of his award was made at a glittering gala dinner at The Monarch Dubai  last night, where Prince Al Waleed’s son Prince Khalid bin Al Waleed was on hand to receive the award on behalf of his father.
