Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCI) has stressed the importance of its upcoming GCC HR & Labour Market Conference, stating that it is a good opportunity to learn about the requirements of the Gulf labour market.
In a report by state-held news agency Wam, Amani Bukhamseen, secretary-general in charge of the Federation of GCC Chambers, said: "Hosting the GCC HR & Labour Market Conference by the SCCI for the sixth consecutive time is a continuation of the outstanding successes achieved in its previous sessions, and emphasises the importance of Sharjah's role in launching constructive development initiatives.
“This also reflects the UAE’s keenness to consolidate joint Gulf action and promote economic partnerships among business communities."
Bukhamseen pointed out that the importance of the conference lies in identifying the appropriate mechanisms and general concepts in the field of human development economics, most notably, human capital, knowledge capital, performance standards, and efficiency and quality in the GCC countries, in addition to shedding light on the investment returns in the development and localisation of the Gulf labour market.
The event will be held at the Expo Centre Sharjah on 14 and 15 October.
