What is the Purpose of Qualitative Policies?

The Abu Dhabi Dialogue (ADD) organised an official meeting with relevant authorities to undertake steps for policies aiming to empower Emirati citizens.

The policies launched under the UAE initiative revolve around strengthening the platform for dialogue which act as a channel for the receiving and sending states of contractual labour within the Asian region.

Objectives of Policies

The honourable Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli, the Minister of MOHRE vividly briefed about the objectives of the policies-

  • It is vital to identify the best practices which could foster the mobility of temporary contractual labour among the states. It is expected that the proper execution would help both demander and labourers earn mutual development profits.
  • The selected package of qualitative policies along with programs is directed towards the future of work and employment. Abu Dhabi’s government needs to empower the human resource to maintain economic stability as well as the employment rate.
  • These programs would immensely help the Emirati citizen with a platform to possess the required knowledge and set of skills matching the criteria to be met by the future labour market.


The UAE has the aim of utilising the latent potential of new and sustainable economic sectors. On the implementation part, the government would invest in these plans and take appropriate measures for attracting the highly-skilled workers, thereby enhancing the employment stability and position in the UAE region.

The Future of Work” forum organised by the Abu Dhabi Dialogue was divided into three working sessions. The projects were scrutinised on the priority basis syncing to establish a human element as one of the strongest pillars of economic and social development.

In the first session, the policies undertaken were reviewed by the-

  • Employment Policy Department
  • International Labour Organization (ILO)

The second session was concentrated on consolidating the catalyst pillars boosting the skills of labour such as educational institutions and the national policies of the states.

The steps and meetings hosted by the UAE government for bringing the topic of the importance of the exchange of human resource (specifical labourers) were highly lauded by-

  • Ministry of Telecommunications
  • Foreign Employment and Sports
  • Government of Sri Lanka
  • Chair-in-Office of the Abu Dhabi Dialogue

Alliance with the Ministry of Education

The UAE’s department of Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation signed a contract of partnership with the Ministry of Education and Universities. The affiliation comes up with the project ‘Wajihni’: A National Program for educating the workers with field training and summer work.

The project  contributed to Emiratisation 360 initiatives driven to educate Emirati youth and glorify the significance and merits of being employed in the private sector.

The Wajihni project had boosted the employment rate and encouraged potential investors who want to incorporate a company in UAE. A proper match between the human resource and job skills required had benefited the labour-intensive or human resource-driven companies.

Initiatives for Crucial Sectors

Natural resources are non- renewable, and the same has made it a requirement to utilise human resources. Moreover, the citizens can adapt to the dynamic global changes can be achieved only by empowering our generations with a vital education, developed economy and innovative plans for the future.

The Economy
