Created by DCT Abu Dhabi’s Emiratisation and Capability Development Section, the initiatives aim to generate greater Emirati participation in Abu Dhabi’s tourism activities, outlining qualifications and skills required for a hospitality career pathway.

DCT Abu Dhabi director general for Tourism Saleh Mohammed Al Geziry said: “We have an outstanding Emirati and international talent pool in Abu Dhabi, with the necessary skills and aptitudes to succeed in the emirate’s exciting and rapidly growing tourism sector. Through this revamped Emiratisation and sector-wide training programme, we can maximise the potential of our UAE workforce, fulfil our strategic goal to create a thriving and diverse tourism eco-system, and build bridges between cultures by allowing visitors to meet and interact with both Emiratis and a range of other nationalities across our tourism assets.”
