Emirates Foun­da­tion said it has joined forces with Al Nasser Hold­ing to nur­ture a new gen­er­a­tion of Emi­rati busi­ness lead­ers. The foun­da­tion, which was es­tab­lished to fa­cil­i­tate pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ships for em­pow­er­ing youth, has signed a one-year agree­ment with the firm. Un­der the deal, the com­pany will sup­port the foun­da­tion’s pro­grammes, aimed at cre­at­ing bet­ter ac­cess and un­der­stand­ing of the labour mar­ket and em­pow­er­ing young peo­ple to take on fu­ture roles within di­ver­si­fied busi­nesses in­ter­ests. Clare Wood­craft–Scott, CEO of Emirates Foun­da­tion, said: “By part­ner­ing with the pri­vate sec­tor we get ac­cess to tech­ni­cal in­put and also pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for em­ployee en­gage­ment, al­low­ing us to con­nect our youth di­rectly to the mar­ket. “We look for­ward to work­ing with Al Nasser Hold­ing.” Air­line Drag­o­nair has re­branded as Cathay Dragon, bring­ing it closer to sis­ter com­pany Cathay Pa­cific.
