UAE will help GCC exchange data on labour market

posted on 04/12/2005: 621 views

The Council of Labour Ministers in the GCC states has assigned the UAE to prepare a technical memorandum on how best to develop a process to facilitate the exchange of data on the region's labour markets, officials said yesterday. The Council had recently concluded its meetings in Bahrain.

The officials said that the UAE will work on implementing the meeting's memo, according to the Khaleej Times. The Council will be provided with the latest regulations, updates and systems for the preparation of a comparative study on the legislation systems in the member countries to prepare a unified guide project.

The Council will keep up cooperation with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) through its executive office to acquire $100,000 financial support to accomplish the model unified system for labour market information. GCC countries will also update the unified Arab and Gulf instructions manual for classifications and career designations to complete its endorsement process.

In addition, a study on empowering women and supporting their role in the Gulf development will be conducted. This is to be a part of the nationalisation process to provide more job opportunities for citizens, which is one of the biggest challenges of the GCC countries. According to experts, for the purpose of replacing expatriates with nationals, coordination between the workforce and the needs of the labour market is required.

The Regional Manager of the Arab Labour Organisation, Dr Talib Al Refa'ey, said that GCC countries would be assisted by the organisation in specifying and developing the employment policies, human resources development, unemployment and updating the policies of technical and career training in compliance with the need of the labour market.

A technical unit will be established in the executive office of the GCC council, which will develop its web page, he added. The UAE labour minister and those in the rest of the GCC states signed a protocol of cooperation to approve the joint plan of activities for 2006-2007. The plan covers operation and labour market information, occupational safety, occupational health, big and small establishments, work regulations in the GCC, basic rights, etc. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
