The text of the question, according to the formula Al-Salami presented to the council, is: “I would like to put the following question to the Minister of Human Resources and Emiratization, Dr. Abdulrahman bin Abdulmanan Al-Awar. Our wise leadership has led to the allocation of 24 billion dirhams to accommodate 75,000 private sector citizens over the next five years, with an average of 15,000 jobs per year, under the program launched by the government of the United Arab Emirates, in the second package of the fifty projects, aimed at supporting and strengthening the national economy and achieving a qualitative leap in development in the UAE, and as it falls within the competence of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization to follow up and evaluate to carry out the process citizens in the private sector, so what are the procedures of the ministry to implement the implementation mechanism for the employment g of citizens in the private sector over the next five years?
Al-Salami told “Emirates Today”: “In recent years, we have witnessed many initiatives launched by the ministry, with the aim of increasing emirate rates for institutions and private sector institutions, but in practice they booked not a remarkable success for several reasons, the most important of which was the lack of real and positive interaction of parties.Working with those initiatives, but where the cabinet takes over this dossier and issues many decisions and initiatives that require and motivate employers to resettle, as well as the attracting and motivating citizens to work in the private sector, I felt it necessary to ask this question to find out about the tools and mechanisms the ministry has to ensure the success of the government’s intention to provide 75,000 jobs to citizens in the private sector during the next five years.”
He added: “In digital terms, private sector employers, which are registered under the responsibility of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization, are required to provide 15,000 real jobs for citizens annually. Emiratization, especially in light of the rumors that some companies are re-hiring and transferring citizens already working for them to the Nafes initiative, within the required Emiratization numbers?
Al-Salami indicated that his question also addresses the developments and challenges of cooperation and coordination between the Ministries of Human Resources and Emiratization, and Higher Education, to create specializations in line with the requirements of the labor market in the country, stressing that it is not correct for state universities to hold high ranks among their counterparts in the world while failing to find its graduates real job opportunities.

Each exhibition announces the number of jobs and training opportunities that are foreseen, along with the names of the citizens who have been selected.
He said this proposal shifts the “Nafis” initiative from its virtual reality, which has undoubtedly achieved tangible success, to the real reality that will deliver much better results, through direct friction between national cadres and employers, “which is very satisfying among the citizens in the Emiratization file.
