Dubai Smart Government launches UAE Government's first LinkedIn company page in Arabic

posted on 16/04/2015: 1551 views

Dubai Smart Government has become the first UAE Government body to launch an official company page in Arabic on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network on the internet with more than 347 million members across the world.

Ahmad bin Humaidan, Director General of the Dubai Smart Government, said, "This step is in support of the vision of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to nurture a strong national identity and adapt our communications to embrace the national language of our country. As the first UAE Government authority to launch a LinkedIn company page in Arabic, we are proud to embrace our heritage and culture, which we feel is our responsibility as a representative of Dubai's smart future."

Bin Humaidan added, "Despite the fact that Arabic is spoken by around half a billion people and is an official language of the United Nations, there is a lack of Arabic-language content available on the internet. As native speakers, we are all responsible for building up a strong presence of Arabic content online, and should take it upon ourselves to be responsible for developing more websites, platforms and pages that speak our language."

Ali Matar, Head of LinkedIn Talent Solutions, MENA, said, "With LinkedIn now in Arabic, our 14 million members from the MENA region and the millions of Arabic speakers globally can grow their professional networks, access quality content, and pursue economic opportunity in the comfort of their own language. We are proud that the Dubai Smart Government chose to make this shift to Arabic on our platform, which will enable them to strengthen their talent sourcing from among our global database of members, and simultaneously position the Dubai Government as the regional pioneer in all things 'Smart'."

Dubai Smart Government's Arabic LinkedIn page will help to solidify communications between departments, companies, and individuals. Additionally, the page will serve as a solid resource for job seekers, while allowing Dubai Smart Government to access a wide base of Arabic-speaking professionals to fill role requirements. The LinkedIn company page will also list services that are provided by Dubai Smart Government, as well as detailing the work environment and providing a listing of available job opportunities. Arabic users will automatically login to the Arabic LinkedIn page, while English users can change their personal settings for English preference. – Emirates News Agency, WAM –
