A new Emiratisation programme has been unveiled in Dubai.

In a series of Tweets, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, said the objective of the new plan is to create "a job for every citizen".

He said providing a decent way of life for every UAE citizen is a top priority and that Emiratis have proven their worth in various fields.

The plan aims to identify and address the biggest challenges facing the process of Emiratisation.

Below are the five main pillars of the plan:

  1. Identifying and analyzing the job market
  2. Education systems and skills
  3. Work programmes and information 
  4. Vocational guidance
  5. Policies and legislation
