  • Dr. Ahmad Humaid Belhoul Al Falasi, Minister of State for Higher Education and Advanced Skills, attended a global conference on the ‘Future of Work’ organised by the World Economic Forum, WEF, held in New York City on Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Al Falasi’s participation in the New York event comes just a few months after the UAE government signed on to join WEF’s Closing the Skills Gap 2020 Programme, at the Forum’s conference in Dalian, China.
  • Dr. Al Falasi noted that successful collaborations proactively addressed potential challenges by exploring four main elements: the challenges likely to arise upon signing; additional challenges likely to come up beyond the initial agreement; existing solutions for these early challenges; and the lessons to be learned from resolving these challenges.
