UAE to train workers in India Posted on: Mon 20-Feb-2012
Abudhabi: The UAE's Federal Demographic Council (FDC) said the UAE would set up training centres in India starting in 2013 in an effort to control the flow of unskilled workers into the UAE's construction industry, according to Saeed Abdullah, the National Productivity Improvement Programme manager at the FDC.
While the workers will have to bear the cost of the training, they will no longer have to pay huge amounts to recruitment agencies or private travel agents to get jobs. Pakistan and Bangladesh will also eventually have training centres. Industry representatives said that the new rule would result in companies being forced to raise wages to cover the cost.
