A parliamentary report identified five reasons behind what it called “low Emiratisation rates” in the establishments and institutions of the industrial sector in the country, especially those affiliated with the private sector, most notably the low salaries and privileges in the private sector for citizens in general, as well as the failure of private entities to achieve Emiratisation rates.

The report included proposals that contribute to the development of national industries and the increase in Emiratisation rates, the most important of which is the development of a legislative mechanism that obliges factory owners to settle supervisory and administrative professions in factories.

The report called on the Ministries of Industry and Advanced Technology, and Human Resources and Emiratisation to raise the percentage of Emiratisation in the industrial sector, find solutions that contribute to creating a strong national economy, demand specialization in various industries, and inform national investors of the most important international trade agreements to take advantage of the advantages that benefit them,and the industrial sector in the country.

The report attributed what it described as “weak Emiratisation rates” in the industrial sector to five main reasons, the first of which is the low salaries and privileges in the private sector for citizens, and the failure of private authorities to achieve Emiratisation rates, in addition to the requirement of employers to provide experience in exchange for the absence of centers to qualify and train graduates with some Countries that have established institutes to train graduates.

The list included the citizen's lack of security for the future of the private sector, the wrong stereotype about some professions and the lack of awareness of their future, stressing the importance of preparing legislation obligating factory owners to settle supervisory and administrative professions.
