      I, Dr. Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Suwaiyan extend my thanks and gratitude to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, His Majesty King Salman bin Abdulaziz, on the occasion of the release of the Royal Decree of my appointment as Rector of the University of Hafr Al Batin.  I value the keenness of his leadership in the development of the Kingdom. The Kingdom’s Vision 2030 and National Transformation 2020 set clear targets for universities to reach in their role as providers of scientific competencies which meet the needs of the labor market and compete with the world’s most prestigious universities – thus leading us toward the ultimate goal of serving the fatherland and contributing toward the movement of intellectual, industrial and economic development.

       Through fostering science and knowledge, strengthening national cohesion and the sense of belonging to this great country, we move forward in achieving lofty goals with full thanks to God Almighty.  The directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, his Royal Highness Crown Prince Muhammed bin Nayef and his Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman heighten our enthusiasm and desire to serve the nation and its citizens.  I note that this precious mandate from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques brings to me a very great responsibility towards the sons and daughters, male and female students, professors and indeed the community of Hafr Al Batin so dear to our hearts.  I thank His Royal Highness, Saud bin Nayef, the Prince of the Eastern Region, for his precious guidance.

      I also profoundly thank His Excellency, the Minister of Education, Dr. Ahmed Al-Eissa, who has given me this great responsibility to lead and develop this newly established university and I ask God to grant me success in this mission accountable before God and this generous country which is witnessing unprecedented historic achievements in higher education in all fields.

      Prof. AbdulAziz Al Suwayyan
