private sector perspective
The Executive Director of the Emirates National Talent Development Program, Issa Al Mulla, stated that the state dealt with the Emiratisation file, from the perspective of the private sector, which looks at things through profit and loss accounts.
Al-Mulla said that during the previous periods, the majority of employers considered that the employment of a citizen represented a financial burden compared to a non-citizen who did not need an insurance account and a minimum salary, although the citizen represented an added value for employers, which was confirmed and proven by recent government measures. The citizen is of great importance within the private sector.
He added, “What is currently required from the private sector is to quickly respond to government initiatives, and to move towards benefiting from them, especially since it has now ensured the presence of a qualified national cadre at the highest and stable level, at a material cost that does not exceed non-citizens.”
