Dubai: The 5th GCC HR and Labour Market Executive Conference will kick off on Sunday discussing human capital and the Gulf labour market.

The event is organised by the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and will take place between October 15-16 under the slogan ‘Gulf human capital, a promising wealth.’ The conference will see the participation of various decision makers and business leaders from the UAE and GCC as well as representatives from the private sector.

Khaled Bin Butti, director general of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said that the UAE had launched a plan to build the structure of its human capital and qualify them.
