ABU DHABI – Speeding up job creation in the UAE’s private sector was the focus of a recent meeting between the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation and the Work Opportunities Committee, formed by the Executive Committee of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council.
More than 10,000 jobs for UAE citizens are expected to be created in the next five years following a directive by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council.
The meeting was attended by Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, Maryam Eid AlMheiri, Head of the Work Opportunities Committee and CEO of the Media Zone Authority-Abu Dhabi, and Amer Hussain Al Hammadi, Acting Director-General of the Human Resources Authority.
The agencies discussed challenges to the goal, including the fact that 80 percent of UAE citizens specialise in areas required by the private sector, but they prefer to join the government sector.
AlMheiri said that to overcome these challenges, government and private sector authorities need to build relations to create employment programmes in various sectors.
She added that providing work opportunities is a national responsibility for everyone, and requires the combined efforts of all relevant authorities.
“Through the cooperation between the ministry and other authorities, we can launch training programmes to provide those searching for work with the necessary skills and raise their readiness to seize the best available opportunities in the job market,” she said. GAD/Expat Media
