(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The uae enjoys a strong economic structure that has helped in providing tremendous business opportunities in different economic sectors which are reflected in last year?s dh1.

a member of the board to represent employers in west asian countries al kaabi told the conference “the uae is considered a hub for more than 25 per cent of the top 500 corporations worldwide and global reports expect a continuation in the economy’s growth achieving up to 5 per cent during the current year. this without a doubt enabled the uae to provide employment opportunities for millions from around the world and we expect to see more international reports with this increased growth especially after getting the chance to host expo 2020.”

he highlighted business owners’ commitment in providing decent work opportunities for all employees in partnership with the uae government. he also expressed pride in the contributions made by labourers who worked hard to build up a stable infrastructure which seeks to achieve uae’s 2021 vision in advancing development and promoting investment through a competitive and highly productive economy.

he also pinpointed the iitiative made by the ministries of labour in the uae and kuwait to host the abu dhabi dialogue in collaboration with some companies in the construction sector and a number of labour-sending countries represented by the philippines pakistan and india. the initiative aims at establishing a labourers skill recognition mechanism through experience certificates that would be documented and recognised in both labour-sending/receiving countries as part of the workers benefits.

negative practices

“i’d like to also point out some of the negative practices held by private employment agencies in labour-sending countries including not clarifying the worker’s duties which results in a negative attitude towards accepting the offer after a worker had been received by his company in one of the labour-receiving countries and that would dramatically affect the employers for paying recruitment expenses without benefits” al kaabi said.

he also identified abu dhabi dialogue’s role to monitor and cut down the above cases specifically in advising labour-sending countries to reduce negative practices by these private recruitment agencies and protect labourers’ rights.
