We are pleased to present to you this special edition of the UAE Banking & Finance magazine issued by the Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies. This year we honor and acknowledge the announcement by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE that 2018 in the UAE will carry the slogan “The Year of Zayed” and mark it as a national occasion to celebrate the late founding leader Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth, we want to highlight the role of the late leader in the establishment and development of the UAE as a progressive nation and economy, and showcase his impact and legacy, and promote the values that he displayed throughout his life.
The launch of the twentieth National Exhibition of Employment in the Banking, Finance and Government sector in Sharjah, is an example of such efforts that are aligned with his vision.
The exhibition provides a platform to accelerate the process of Emiratisation in the banking and financial sector. The Institute has been keen to maintain the organization of the National Exhibition of Employment in the Banking, Financial and Government sector, due to its significance and great contribution in providing opportunities to the job seekers and creating a direct link with the banking, finance and government institutions. The exhibition was one of the initiatives of the Human Resources Development Committee in the Banking and Finance sector, which is keen to support the policies of the state for increasing Emiratisation ratio in the banking and financial sector. This year due to the Human Resources Development Committee’s efforts we have witnessed a remarkable success in increasing Emiratization ratios as compared to other private sector institutions.
We strongly believe that such exhibitions will continue to improve the employability prospects of the nationals and contribute greatly in reducing the unemployment rates among job seekers. It also provides opportunity to identify the availability of jobs (demand) and the available capabilities and skills (supply) and increases the prospects of maintaining the balance in demand and supply. We are also very keen to contribute towards maintaining this balance by ensuring there is a smooth supply of right capabilities and skills through employment-oriented training, which is one of the Institute’s key, focus areas.
Our continuous support towards this initiative is evident in our strategy for (20172019). In which we have great emphasis on expansion of our training base and quality enhancement. This will ensure that we have right capabilities in place for building the capacity, skills and knowledge required to achieve the national agenda.
