Cab­i­net clears ap­point­ments

The Gulf Today - - FRONT PAGE -

ABU DHABI: The UAE Cab­i­net on Satur­day is­sued a res­o­lu­tion ap­point­ing Noura Bint Mo­hammed Al Kaabi, Min­is­ter of Cul­ture and Knowl­edge De­vel­op­ment, as Pres­i­dent of Zayed Univer­sity; Nasser Bin Thani Al Hamli, Min­is­ter of Hu­man Re­sources and Emi­rati­sa­tion, as Pres­i­dent of the Higher Col­leges of Tech­nol­ogy; and Saeed Ahmed Ghobash as Chan­cel­lor of the United Arab Emi­rates Univer­sity.

The new ap­point­ments go in har­mony with the gov­ern­ment’s strat­egy to align the higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions with the labour mar­ket re­quire­ments and to en­sure ad­vanced rank­ing for UAE uni­ver­si­ties among the world’s best col­leges in line with the UAE Vi­sion 2021 and The UAE Cen­ten­nial 2071 Plan.

The UAE Cen­ten­nial 2071 pro­gramme is based on four as­pects: Ed­u­ca­tion, econ­omy, gov­ern­ment de­vel­op­ment, and com­mu­nity co­he­sion.

The goal is for the UAE to be the best coun­try in the world by 2071.

The vi­sion’s ob­jec­tives also in­clude the de­vel­op­ment of ed­u­ca­tion, with a fo­cus on ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy and en­gi­neer­ing, and in­still­ing an Emi­rati moral val­ues sys­tem in fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

Within this con­text, the new ap­point­ments are a new in­te­grated at­tempt to en­able high ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions to serve as in­no­va­tion friendly in­cu­ba­tors that bridge the gap found in the labour mar­ket, where the need is grow­ing for highly qual­i­fied Emi­rati cadres.

As per the ap­point­ment de­ci­sion, the cab­i­net af­firmed that ed­u­ca­tion con­tin­ues to be the foun­da­tion stone for groom­ing a gen­er­a­tion ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing the fu­ture, and a ro­bust en­abler for the coun­try’s sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment drive.
