Emiratisation faces major hurdles in Public Sector

The National - 23 May 2012

The FNC heard that Emiratisation still faces major challenges.

Humaid Al Qattami, the chairman of directors at the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources, appeared before the council to answer questions on the progress of employment among UAE nationals.

Mr Al Qattami, also the Minister of Education, said some ministries such as labour and foreign affairs were close to being entirely run by Emiratis, but others including health were lagging largely because of a lack of professionals.

"However, most ministries have more than 60 per cent Emiratisation," he said. "The ministries are trying to increase their numbers. If they fall below 50 per cent, they have to draw up a plan."
