Middle East Regional Workshop on Migration Governance
Wednesday, September 1, 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM (Qatar Time)
Thursday, September 2, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Qatar Time)
Fragomen is pleased to invite you to join the Business Advisory Group on Migration’s regional online workshop on 1 September, and the subsequent dialogue with Governments on 2 September.
The workshop entitled ‘Business Perspectives on Skills Mobility: A roadmap to recovery. Focus on Middle East’ will concentrate on the six GCC countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates). The objective of the workshop is to highlight best practices of immigration frameworks that are conducive to filling skills gaps, while also addressing challenges faced by employers in the region when accessing foreign skills.
The outcomes of the employer-only session on 1 September will be presented at the dialogue between employers and governments on 2 September. Employers are encouraged to attend both days.
As part of the employer-only workshop, Fragomen’s Qatar Practice Leader, Azeem Mohiuddin, will present the findings of Fragomen’s research survey and paper ‘Exploring the Successes, Opportunities and Challenges of business immigration frameworks in the Middle East’ on 1 September. On 2 September, Murtaza Khan, Fragomen’s Managing Partner Middle East and Africa will present on behalf of Austin Fragomen, Chair of the Business Advisory Group.
There is still time to contribute to Fragomen’s survey, the results of which will be confidentially presented in the research paper on 1 September. This is an excellent opportunity for the business community in the Middle East to present its views, experiences and provide feedback on business immigration policies and procedures.
