ABU DHABI, The Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli, today met with the Foreign Minister of Ethiopia, Workneh Gebeyehu, and discussed with him means of enhancing mutual cooperation between the two friendly countries in the field of recruitment and employment of workers, including support services workers.

During the meeting, they reaffirmed the desire to strengthen cooperation through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, to regulate the recruitment of workers from Ethiopia, according to the needs of employers and families.

Al Hamli emphasised the wish of the UAE to provide protection for those with temporary contractual employment and to establish a transparent working relationship between parties during all stages of the contractual work cycle, especially in light of existing national legislations that regulate such relationships to guarantee the rights and duties of both parties.

Gebeyehu praised the development witnessed by the state in various fields as well as the legislation and practices applied in the labour market, which protect workers, including Ethiopian workers.
