The UAE leadership is announcing its second set of plans under the UAE’s ‘Projects of the 50’ today.
The first 13 out of the 50 grand projects last week revealed progressive reforms for residential visas and several economic programmes that will bolster the country’s growth.
The plans are being revealed today at the Qasr Al Watan Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi, three months ahead of the UAE’s 50th National Day celebrations on December 2.
The UAE Government has announced the allocation of Dh24 billion to employ 75,000 Emiratis in the private sector.
The scheme will have 13 projects.
Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs, said the government will bear the cost of training Emiratis for the private sector.
