With the great acceleration in scientific development, and its effects on various aspects of economic, social and political life in the world, the twenty-first century carries great challenges, which require a clear future vision that can anticipate the future and develop appropriate plans to meet the challenges of the times.
As is well known, the most prominent challenges facing any society are the need for optimal investment in human energies, and investment in people who are the most important capital in any society, something that the United Arab Emirates, under its wise leadership, gave great attention to, as it always sought and strove to focuse on the Emirati people, enhancing their productive potential, and developing plans to expand the participation of all citizens in pushing forward the civilization in the country, hence the UAE aims to double the number of citizens working in the private sector to 10 times the current number by 2021, and bridge the structural gap. The UAE labor market is characterized by the predominance of the expatriate workforce over the local.
In this context, the government in the UAE encourages both the public and private sectors to strengthen the nationalization policies of jobs in all aspects, and to increase the share of citizens in the various work sectors.
The state also decided to raise the level of participation of national cadres in the labor market, by requiring companies to adhere to the rates of Emiratisation, hence the goal of establishing the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, to be a big step in this direction.
Although the UAE has made great strides in the Emiratisation policy, what is unfortunate is that some establishments have not given the citizens working with them the positions and responsibilities they deserve, which is something that must be remembered and faced seriously.
