UAE to Train Libyan Ministry of Labour Employees


The UAE Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Libyan Labour Ministry on training and upskilling employees of the Libyan Ministry.

The signing ceremony was held on the side lines of the World Government Summit 2022, taking place at Expo 2020 Dubai, according to Emirates News Agency (WAM).

The MoU aims to develop the skills of Libyan employees in various areas of common interest by launching training programmes and workshops, or enrolling them in MBRSG’s programmes.

The agreement aims to strengthen collaboration towards training and upskilling employees, in addition to implementing an integrated set of policies and standards to accomplish strategic objectives.

It also aims at empowering human resources; enhancing competencies across the labour market; promoting quality and transparency standards; and driving government excellence through research studies, as well as educational and training programmes.

The MoU was signed by UAE Ali bin Sebaa Al Marri, MBRSG’s Executive President, and Dr. Adel Ali Al-Aqbi, Director of the International Cooperation Office at the Ministry of Labour and Rehabilitation in the Government of National Unity (GNU) in Libya.

Libyan Minister of Labour and Rehabilitation Ali Al-Abed, and Director-General of the Dubai Government Human Resources Department (DGHR), Abdulla Ali bin Zayed Al Falasi, attended the signing ceremony.

“The MoU reflects our mindset and approach, which are rooted in cooperation and partnership,” the UAE official told WAM.

“We hope this collaboration will help shape a promising future for our human capital, which is certainly the region’s most valuable asset and the most effective instrument to advance Arab countries and boost their competitiveness now and in the future,” he added.

Al-Abed said his Ministry is looking forward to seeing this agreement reflected in the Libyan workforce and to qualifying Libyan employees in line with market requirements.

“This, in turn, allows us to accomplish our national plans and drive economic and social growth in the future,” Al-Abed explained.

The MoU will see the two parties collaborate to promote further cooperation, communication, and coordination, in addition to developing and advancing each entity’s services.

Both sides will facilitate the exchange of ideas for creative and innovative programmes, and then work together to develop their respective plans and projects.

The MoU also provides for the exchange of knowledge on specialised policies and strategies, corporate governance, risk management, knowledge management, research, studies, and data analysis. The two parties will also exchange resources such as library content and digital information sources.

Other areas of collaboration include management consultancy, scientific and knowledge field trips, government best practices, and research-based decision making. The two parties will also hold meetings, discussions, workshops, seminars, and conferences to exchange ideas and propose innovative programmes to further strengthen cooperation.
