Dubai: The UAE will enhance co-operation and share best practices in the field of human resources with Morocco after it signed an agreement to that effect with the North African country yesterday.

The Memoranda of Understanding (MoU), signed by the UAE’s Federal Authority for Government Human Resources with Morocco, provides for enhancement of co-operation in the fields of civil service legislation, regulation of salaries and job descriptions.

The agreement also covers institutional culture, professional conduct, and regulation of pensions, social security and insurance.   

The MoU was signed during the inauguration of the first International Human Resources Conference and Exhibition, held under the patronage of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai.

Humaid Al Qatami, UAE Minister of Education, signed on behalf of the UAE in his capacity as the Chairman of the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR).

The Moroccan side was represented by Saad Alami, Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister, in charge of public sector development.

Al Qatami said: “The sides will exchange delegations at all levels and participate in seminars, conferences and meetings in both countries with institutions that conduct training and specialised workshops.”

He added that both countries will exchange information and experiences through the MoU, run programmes on human resources, and share access to prominent projects and studies in the administrative systems of human resources.

A joint task force will be formed to follow up on what has been agreed between the two sides, Al Qatami added.

The UAE also signed a similar agreement with Bahrain during the event.
