In line with the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, a plan for Emiratisation in Dubai has been approved by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, to provide “a decent life to every citizen”, which the Crown Prince said was the “top priority” for the government.

The programme focuses on 12 skills to help cement the UAE as a global leader in the coming decades, and was the first in a series of policies under the Strategy for the Advanced Skills National Programme, approved by the UAE Cabinet earlier this year.

Local and federal entities' efforts will be coordinated to achieve the objective of providing a job to every UAE national, and includes five pillars, such as the identification and analysis of the job market, education systems, skills, and work programmes; informational vocational guidance; and other policies and legislations.

Commenting on the plan, the Crown Prince said: “The people of the UAE have proved themselves in all fields, and we are proud of their achievements.

“We believe the partnership between public and private sector is important for such great national responsibility.

"During the next phase, we will look at the challenges and obstacles that have affected the Emiratisation process, and work towards improving them, according to the needs of the labour market as well as the skills of our citizens,” he added, according to UAE state news agency, Wam.
