Including managing job seekers' profiles for each emirate Developing mechanisms to enhance the integration of the federal and local role to achieve Emiratisation objectives
The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation announced the development of mechanisms for cooperation with the concerned authorities in local governments, marking the start of a new phase in the efforts to achieve the objectives of the Emiratisation (Tawteen) file based on the transition from coordination to the integration of roles between the federal and local government sectors in a manner consistent with the relevant decisions and policies issued by the UAE Cabinet and the Ministerial Council for Development.
This announcement came as part of the outcomes of the ‘Tawteen Committee’ chaired by His Excellency Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, whose members include representatives of local government entities concerned with Emiratisation in each emirate.
H.E. Nasser bin Kherbash, Under-Secretary for Emiratisation Affairs at the Ministry, said, "The new mechanisms of cooperation confirm the joint keenness to integrate efforts between the ministry and the local authorities concerned with Emiratisation in accordance with the roles and responsibilities assigned to all partners, in order to achieve the objectives of Emiratization in a manner that translates the directives of the wise leadership and meets the aspirations of the UAE citizens."
He added, "Mechanisms developed for complementary cooperation between the ministry and its partners in local governments include all aspects of the Emiratisation file, including employment and training of citizens and encouraging companies to interact with Emiratisation decisions and programs as well as the exchange of information and data, all in a manner that meets the needs and requirements of each emirate."
Bin Kherbash stressed that, “under the cooperation based on integrating roles, MoHRE will continue to uphold its responsibilities in terms of setting public policies and programs related to Emiratization in its various pillars in cooperation with local government entities in line with their plans and projects to supports their efforts and role in managing jobseekers profiles, especially in terms of their registration and follow-up of their recruitment and training processes.”
Bin Kherbash appreciated the efforts of local government entities and their eagerness to play their role, which constitutes a major pillar in the Emiratisation file, stressing that the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to recruitment processes in the labour market, similar to other global labour markets, require intensifying joint efforts and strengthening partnerships between all government and private sectors, in order to achieve the objectives of the Emiratization file.
