DUBAI, UAE, April 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Since the introduction of nationalisation, the private sector faced difficulties in achieving quota targets especially in technical industries such as construction, oil and gas. IQPC's 6th Annual GCC Nationalisation Summit, supported by the Emirates National Development Programme and the British Council, will provide an interactive platform for HR professionals to learn about best-practices and how to implement them into their organisations.
Building a strong national workforce and growing human capabilities is key for the GCC region in order to avoid any hurdles which could arise in the future society. With many regional developments, there is an increase in vacancies which create opportunities for local talent to develop careers. The public and private sector must work hand in hand to support nationalisation, however many key stakeholders believe that it all starts with the right education and frame of mind. In an exclusive interview with IQPC, Mr. Essa Al Mulla, Executive Director at the Emirates National Development Programme said: "We now do more work with the local Emiratisation department on introducing career counselling and guidance in the school level. Many locals are dropping out of school and by not graduating from high school, they are unable either to continue their higher education or to find a good job." Mr. Al Mulla will be hosting an interactive panel discussion on career guidance in public schools at the 6th Annual GCC Nationalisation Summit, taking place from 24 - 27 April 2011 at the Grand Millennium, Dubai. The summit will welcome experts from leading regional and international organisations including ENDP, British Council, Al Futtaim Group, KPMG, EIBFS, NIVE, Qatar Foundation, Schlumberger and many more.
Mr. Essa Al Mulla also mentioned: "Until today we don't have any coordination between the different nationalisation programmes in the GCC countries. I think that all of us feel we need to work towards one aim, one objective, and this will be transferred to the private sector, which means that we will have some sort of collaboration between the requirement of the government and private sector. We need to consider the nationals who are in the different GCC countries and make them part of this overall solution. If we miss this one part from the triangle, then we will be missing a very important element of the future development."
The summit will cover all aspects of the different nationalisation challenges from highly educational and interactive workshops, which will uncover practical solutions. For more information about the event, please visit the website http://www.gccnationalisation.com.
