Our hope with UAE youth is great and trust in them is greater: Al Hamli
In response to the ‘Next 50 Year Project’ launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, H.E. Nasser Bin Thani Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, participated in a virtual youth circle titled ‘Future of UAE labor and business community’, which was recently organized by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) in co-operation with the Federal Youth Authority (FYA) as part of the MoHRE’s initiatives to prepare for the next 50 years.
“The Emiratisation file will remain a national priority aimed at training, qualifying and employing Emiratis concurrently with stimulating entrepreneurship to which the government pays great attention in implementation of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s directives and vision that stress the necessity to provide all forms of support to Emirati entrepreneurs to enable them to lead the UAE business community, which is witnessing tough competition and cultural diversity,” Al Hamli said.
This youth circle is a platform for hearing the voice of the youth and allowing them to express their views, put forward their ideas and perceptions and hence participate in shaping the future of the UAE labor market and the labor and business community, he said.
“This translates the directives of our wise leadership, which stress the necessity to empower and support our youth as well as motivate them to take part in the national efforts exerted to prepare for the next 50 years in order to have national qualified staff to lead our economic sectors,” he added.
Hope with the nation’s youth is great and trust in them is greater, considering that they constitute a major contributor to the process of development and the UAE efforts to prepare for the next 50 years, he said.
Al Hamli valued the FYA’s efforts to streamline the role played by the UAE youth and also support them and encourage them to participate effectively in developing the UAE and contribute to its reputation.
The circle was attended from the MoHRE by H.E. Nasser Bin Kharbash, Undersecretary for Emiratisation Affairs, Farida Al Ali, Assistant Undersecretary for National Human Resources Recruitment, Ahmed Al Nasser, Assistant Undersecretary for National Human Resources Development, and Abdullah Al Nuaimi, Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Communication and International Relations. It was also attended by a number of young Emiratis employed in the government and private sectors, entrepreneurs, owners of small and medium enterprises and interested people.
A number of young participants presented a set of ideas and proposals that underlined the importance of analyzing the needs and skills required for the UAE labor market. They also offered a number of specialized vocational training programs with the participation of various educational institutions.
The ideas given underscored the need to promote e-commerce platforms specialized in national projects and protect them with a legal umbrella that guarantees the rights of all parties. Other ideas included the launch of a national platform to develop skills and expertise.
The participants also submitted a proposal to develop the idea of the ‘Young Entrepreneur’ by providing the necessary support for developing and making a success of the project. Other proposals included the launch of a national program to support and empower Emiratis in the fields of fishing and agriculture as well as some professions and crafts.
