New Criteria for DHDA encourages private sector participation in the development of UAE nationals
The Department of Economic Development (DED) announced the new and detailed criteria for the Dubai Human Development Award (DHDA) at a recent press conference. The department also released a brochure detailing the various aspects of the new DHDA model that have been formulated after extensive deliberations between the advisory committee and assessors of last year’s award and feedback from the participants.
The DHDA, which aims to encourage the private sector to actively participate in the development of UAE Nationals, was first launched by the DED last year. The first-time winners of the award were honored in three categories alongside the presentation of the Dubai Quality Award.
The five objectives of the award include promoting awareness and understanding of the necessity of developing United Arab Emirates (UAE) nationals, encouraging private sector participation in this development, acknowledging and rewarding distinguished efforts by the private sector in this connection, encouraging the private sector to offer development and training services and conducting and publishing relevant research.
All private companies and establishments registered with the DED or the Free Zone authorities in Dubai are eligible to participate in the award according to the size of the organization. The economic sectors have been classified under seven categories that include financial, trading, manufacturing, services, construction, professional and tourism. — (menareport.com)
