In a bid to create a dialogue between the Indian recruitment agencies and UAE's Employers and to identify solutions for creating a robust workforce mobility mechanism, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) is organizing the 'India-UAE Skill Mapping and HR Conference' in Dubai on 22 April 2018.

A 40-member strong Indian delegation to the conference is being led by Dr K.P. Krishnan, Secretary, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India and Mr Manish Kumar, CEO, National Skill Development Corporation. The conference is also supported by Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India.Dr Omar Al Nuaimi, Assistant Undersecretary, Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, UAE will lead the deliberations from the country.

The other participants and stakeholders at the conference include Indian High Commission at the UAE, Ministry of Labor (UAE), National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), Jharkhand State Skill Development Mission, Indian training providers and placement agencies along with employers from the UAE.

The deliberations will also explore the mechanism for capturing the demands of the workforce in the UAE, and skilling of Indian workforce catering to the UAE's high-demand sectors and ways to facilitate the ethical migration of the Indian skilled workforce to the UAE. 

In the recent years, the number of international migrants worldwide has continued to grow rapidly, reaching 258 million in 2017, up from 173 million in 2000. While creating local jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities is the need of the hour, migration of skilled workforce outside India can also offer alternative options for skilled people and meet global workforce shortages.

"With such initiatives by FICCI and other stakeholders, India can leverage strategic interventions like mapping of skill-sets required in the UAE and draw an effective roadmap to upskill and reskill its workforce", said Mohandas Pai, Chair, FICCI Skill Development Committee and Chairman, Manipal Global Education.
