Emiratisation goals rely on expatriates as part of solution

At the beginning of the month, the Cabinet approved a 10-point national agenda on Emiratisation and education. The strategy emphasises job training for Emiratis, which is the best way to go, but it also got me thinking about other approaches that could complement those efforts.

Emiratisation has always been a hot topic for Emiratis and expatriates both, sometimes for different reasons. In the recent FNC campaign, it was clear that public opinion was very concerned with topics related to the population imbalance, in which Emiratis make up less than 20 per cent of the populace, and how Emiratisation can play a role in realigning the demographics. The issue has a heightened sense of urgency, and rightfully so.

The relatively slow progress of Emiratisation efforts, taken with the 13 per cent unemployment rate of nationals at the beginning of 2011, is a serious concern for national development. Any country's stability depends on its citizen labour force, just from a perspective of continuity. When the financial crisis hit in 2008-9, how many people were afraid that it would be Emiratis who left the country to seek jobs abroad?

Emiratisation and national identity will take centre stage at the Dubai Executive Council's priorities in 2013, said Dubai's Deputy Ruler on Monday.

Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is also the First Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, made the announcement at the Council's meeting, according to state news agency, Wam.

He said the initiative was in line with the recently-announced directives of the UAE's Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, that 2013 be the year dedicated to boosting Emiratisation.

Sheikh Maktoum gave directives to increase the number of national employees in sectors where Emiratisation is not fulfilling the required numbers, said Wam.

The meeting also included discussions on Dubai's economic and social development plan, as well as its developments in the health, safety, security, justice, infrastructure, environment and government sectors.
