A NEW national labour market blueprint came under the spotlight yesterday.
The LMRA board of directors recently endorsed the plan and reviewed financial data for the first quarter and first half of this year as well as internal auditing. Labour Minister and LMRA chairman Jameel Humaidan said the directors discussed in detail the labour market plan to organise co-ordination and integration of efforts between the Labour Ministry, Tamkeen and the Education Ministry, in terms of training and qualification of Bahraini cadres.
The move aims to integrate the cadres into the labour market according to productive recruitment mechanisms.
Mr Humaidan added that programmes formulated by various sides have been included in the plan.
The plan comprises 20 strategic projects, which are scheduled to be implemented within two years.
The LMRA business plan is due to be submitted to the Cabinet soon. The board of directors reviewed reports submitted by the financial committee and approved the semi-annual financial statements.
It also discussed and approved the internal auditor’s plan for LMRA work next year.
The board reviewed the internal regulations for the LMRA board of directors, prepared by the legal committee.
These regulations were endorsed and the executive management was asked to finalise the legal procedures in this regard.
The board also reviewed the chief executive’s report on the LMRA’s activity over the past year.
The board members discussed the new plan in detail.
The executive management is expected to take necessary legal steps to ease procedures for clientele and improve its performance.
