Given the huge potential growth in the manufacturing sector, the manpower requirement in this sector is only going to increase.”

We, as a company, have been supplying manpower to practically all key sectors, including manufacturing and now we are confident that we will make further inroads into this sector,” added Balakumar.
The development of the nation’s free zones has been credited as one of the key factors driving the growth of UAE’s manufacturing sector. In particular, 20% of Jebel Ali Free Zone is focused on manufacturing, which includes light engineering and final stage assembly.
Similarly, Dubai Industrial City focuses on six industrial sectors. These comprise of machinery and mechanical equipment, transport equipment and parts, base metals, chemicals, food and beverages, and mineral products.
“With the success story of the Expo 2020 win, the region is poised to see many more job recruitments in the manufacturing sector. The right kind of manpower is required for managing Expo 2020 which in the next five years will bolster the economic growth of Dubai and UAE in turn,” comments Balakumar.
