Regional Workshop for Middle East

June 1, 2021 – June 3, 2021 all-day

Event Details

To take place in June (Tentative dates : 1 June to 3 June, 2021)

The workshop has two objectives:

  • Employers to assess and discuss the skills needs in the region and consider how skills mobility frameworks could respond to the skills gaps
  • Foster and improve the dialogue and understanding between employers and governments on skills and mobility issues

The workshop is organized in two parts: Employers will share best practices and challenges on accessing and recruiting foreign skills and agree on a set of key policy messages to share with the governments. These messages will be carried over to the dialogue session for discussion between businesses and government.

Part I: Employers-only sessions on

  1. Skills mobility frameworks that respond to labour market needs  
  2. Improved systems for identification, recognition and development of skills to promote skills mobility

Part II: Dialogue between employers and governments  

The topics are aligned with the 2018 Global Compact for Migration (GCM) Objectives 5, 6 and 18, adopted by United Nations members States.

Ultimately, this workshop should provide a platform for exchange between the private sector and governments towards the implementation of the GCM and the Sustainable Development Goals.
