Qatar took part in a high-level UN meeting held on the sidelines of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on 'Partnering for Action: Implementation of the Global Accelerator on Jobs and Social Protection for Just Transitions in the Complex Setting of Overlapping Crises'.
Qatar was represented at the meeting by HE the Minister of Social Development and Family Maryam bint Ali bin Nasser al-Misnad, in the presence of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
In a speech during the meeting, HE al-Misnad underlined Qatar's support for the UN efforts on jobs and social protection for just transitions. She said that the directives of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani have always given priority to creating job opportunities and social protection aiming for achieving a sustainable development policy at the national and international levels.
She added that Qatar considers human development as one of the four pillars of achieving national growth and prosperity; therefore, the Qatari government invested in high-quality educational and training programs to help citizens retain or change jobs and adapt to green and digital transformations.
She stressed that the government's interest went beyond the institutional career sector to reach the domestic private sector. The Ministry of Social Development and Family launched the 'From the Homeland' programme, through which it provides support services to enable productive families to develop their skills in order to ensure the sustainability of their financial resources.
HE the Minister expressed pride in Qatar's continuous efforts which were embodied in the formation of a new legal framework to protect workers' rights and jobs.
