Dubai Integrated Economic Zones Authority (DIEZ) has entered into a partnership with DP World in order to support the Tumoohi Initiative.

This move is in line with its ongoing commitment to empowering young Emirati competencies and preparing the next generation of leaders in the logistics and trade sectors.

Tumoohi is a recognized training program initiative by DP World, designed to boost the careers of young and talented Emiratis by helping them develop essential skills and expertise to excel and have an edge in today’s highly competitive job market.

According to the statement, “By providing unique training programs and hands-on workplace experience at a number of the world’s leading multinational companies, Tumoohi enables trainees to develop a network of professional relationships with industry leaders, in addition to identifying and showcase their competencies with employers looking for specialized talents.”

Under the agreement, DIEZ will give participants an exceptional opportunity to gain professional and practical experience and learn about best practices and global standards.

Participants will be able to work with DIEZ, along with companies registered in the Dubai Airport Freezone (DAFZ) and Dubai Silicon Oasis, offering job opportunities across thousands of leading regional and international companies that have been active within the two free zones in the last 26 years, as per the statement.

Mr. Yousuf Ahmad Al Aslai, Manager, Tumoohi, DP World UAE, said that, “Our youth is fundamental to the success of the UAE in the next 50 years. Therefore, this initiative seeks to enhance the prospects for success by boosting technical and logistical capabilities, and providing a young workforce with an abundance of innovative ideas to promote commercial growth.”

“Through this initiative, we aim to make DIEZ’s free zones and companies even more compelling in attracting local and international talent, by providing similar opportunities and strengthening cooperation with free zone companies to support the Emiratization of their staff,” commented Mr. Saeed Mubarak Obaid Murad, Vice President of Human Resources at DIEZ.
