UAE and Rwanda sign MoU for recruitment of workers to meet private sector's needs

The UAE and Rwanda have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for consolidating their co-operation with respect to recruitment and employment of Rwandan workers by private sector firms in the UAE.

The UAE and Rwanda have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for consolidating their co-operation with respect to recruitment and employment of Rwandan workers by private sector firms in the UAE.

The MoU was signed by HE Nasser Bin Thani Al Hamli, UAE Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, and HE Rwanyindo Kayirangwa Fanfan, Rwandan Minister of Public Service and Labour, following their talks in the Rwandan capital, Kigali. The meeting was attended by Dr. Omar Al Nuaimi, Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation for Communication and International Relations, and a number of officials from both sides.

During their talks, the two sides stressed the keenness of the two friendly countries to develop their co-operation in the workforce field for the benefit of common interests.

"The MoU paves the way to a new phase of understanding between the two sides for implementing the best practices with respect to recruiting and employing Rwandan workers in the UAE while underlying the need for transparency in all phases of temporary contractual employment with a view to guaranteeing the rights of all concerned parties" Al Hamli said.

Commenting on the signed MoU, Al Hamli said the MoU is part of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation’s strategic plan to ensure cultural diversity in the UAE labor market and provide highly trained and qualified workers to do the work they were recruited for in such a manner that would meet the needs of the private sector in the UAE.

The two sides agreed on a specific mechanism for recruiting and employing workers in the UAE private sector, which would ensure transparency in all contract phases and comply with the laws, regulations procedures and guidelines observed in both countries, particularly in terms of the need for a Rwandan worker to obtain before leaving his country a detailed job offer that would fully correspond to the labor contract that he would sign upon his arrival in the UAE.

They also agreed to launch joint programs and activities to raise the awareness of Rwandan workers before they leave their country and after arriving in the UAE about how to upgrade the standards of temporary contractual employment.

The MoU stipulates that in the event of a dispute between an Emirati employer and a Rwandan worker, a complaint is to be registered with the concerned department at the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, which will try to find an amicable settlement for the dispute within a specific timeframe or otherwise refer the complaint to the judicial authorities for adjudication.

A joint committee from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation and Rwanda's Ministry of Public Service and Labour is scheduled to be formed to follow up the implementation of the MoU.
