ADTC to take part in Abu Dhabi book fair
Abu Dhabi, March 2, 2010
Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council (ADTC) is taking part in the 20th annual Abu Dhabi International Book Fair, one of the region’s largest book fairs and a prominent platform for the development of the emirate’s culture and knowledge.
ADTC is a government entity established in December 2005 to spearhead Abu Dhabi government’s efforts in Emirati workforce development.
ADTC's participation at the book fair reflects its efforts to actively engage in the development of the emirate’s human resources, the Council said in a statement.
Encouraging Emiratis to take an active role in developing their own skills and knowledge is central to the advancement of Abu Dhabi’s workforce and economy, it added.
ADTC’s objectives match those of the Book Fair's, given the Council’s focus on helping jobseekers and young people gain the tools needed to succeed in today’s rapidly developing skills-based economy.
Knowledge-based sectors such as those in which Masdar and Mubadala operate in represent a significant opportunity for successful Emiratisation, it added.
ADTC said its participation at the Bok Fair is one of the many ways in which the Council actively supports jobseekers across the UAE and continuously engages with its various stakeholders.-TradeArabia News Service
