DUBAI – Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, has given a two-week deadline for a special team to prepare a plan and launch Emiratisation initiatives.
Sheikh Hamdan directed the General Secretariat of the Executive Council to lead Emiratisation efforts in coordination with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority, the human resources department of the Dubai government, and other government and private sector institutions.
Sheikh Hamdan said the Emiratisation initiative is part of the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The Crown Prince said that he will be directly involved in overseeing the Emiratisation campaign, which he said aims to increase Emirati participation in the job market and boost their contribution to the economy.
“Emiratisation aims to promote development-oriented policies that support productive activities and decent job creation. It will substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship,” he said.
