In his capacity as Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, issued a decree to form the ‘Emirati Human Resources Development Council’.
The council will have representatives from the public and private sector. The new council serves as a reference for entities involved in the development of Emirati human resources in Dubai’s private sector.
It aims to foster an environment in the private sector that is conducive to attracting Emirati talent and ensure that educational outcomes for Emiratis are aligned with the requirements of the UAE labour market.
The decree outlines the roles of the council, which include charting strategic plans for enhancing the private sector employment of UAE nationals; proposing and reviewing policies and legislations for advancing the council’s objectives; and developing programmes that support this goal.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai, also issued a resolution, appointing the Chairman and Members of the Emirati Human Resources Development Council.
