TravTalk - Middle East - - QUICKBYTES -

Dubai Tourism’s two ma­jor ini­tia­tives, be­ing car­ried out by its Dubai Col­lege of Tourism (DCT) – ‘Medyaf’ (Gen­er­ous Host) and the ‘UAE Tour Guide Pro­gramme’ un­der its Emi­rati­sa­tion Pro­gramme, are aimed at train­ing UAE na­tion­als for a fu­ture ca­reer in the tourism in­dus­try. Dubai Tourism was at this year’s Ca­reers UAE at the Dubai World Trade Cen­tre. At this event, DCT is also pro­mot­ing the pro­gramme of Dubai Sum­mer Sur­prises, the sum­mer ex­trav­a­ganza run by the Dubai Fes­ti­vals and Re­tail Es­tab­lish­ment, an agency of Dubai Tourism, to re­cruit young UAE na­tion­als as vol­un­teers dur­ing DSS 2017.

The par­tic­i­pat­ing part­ners of Dubai Tourism rep­re­sent­ing var­i­ous sec­tors in­clud­ing re­tail, hos­pi­tal­ity and en­ter­tain­ment are: Emaar, Jumeirah Group, Dubai Parks and Re­sorts, Chal­houb Group, Shangri-La Ho­tel, Mil­len­nium Ho­tels and Re­sorts, Ac­corHo­tels, Rotana Man­age­ment Co­op­er­a­tion, Habtoor Grand Re­sort, Mar­riott In­ter­na­tional, JA Re­sorts and Ho­tels, IMG Worlds of Ad­ven­ture, Plazzo Ver­sace, Hil­ton and In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Ho­tels Group. Essa Bin Had­her, Gen­eral Man­ager, Dubai Col­lege of Tourism, said: “Young Emi­rati men and women are be­ing en­cour­aged by the lead­er­ship of the coun­try to par­tic­i­pate in all as­pects of devel­op­ment of this na­tion and con­trib­ute to­wards eco­nomic growth. As a re­sult, Dubai’s rapid devel­op­ment has seen the emer­gence of highly qual­i­fied young UAE na­tion­als in the lo­cal work­force, both in govern­ment and pri­vate sec­tors, and more and more of our na­tion­als are get­ting ac­tively in­volved in im­part­ing their knowl­edge and skills in di­verse sec­tors. Against this back­drop, and based on our com­mit­ment to sup­port the on-go­ing pro­gramme of Emi­rati­sa­tion, we have joined hands with our part­ners in the pri­vate sec­tor at this year’s Ca­reers UAE to pro­vide promis­ing young UAE na­tion­als the op­por­tu­nity to learn about suit­able ca­reers with tourist-fac­ing roles in all sec­tors, whether it is cor­po­rate, re­tail, hos­pi­tal­ity or events. We would like to ex­press our sin­cere ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the pri­vate sec­tor en­ti­ties that are sup­port­ing us in the true spirit of col­lab­o­ra­tion to at­tract young vis­i­tors to our stand and of­fer them the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore a range of ex­cit­ing ca­reer op­tions.”
