The Information & eGovernment Authority (IGA) announced its collaboration with the Labor Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) on the development of an Employability Skills Portal (ESP). The cooperation is funded by the Labor Fund (Tamkeen), the platform offers comprehensive data on the skills and jobs in-demand by the labor market.
Scheduled to be launched in the third quarter of the year, the portal will increase transparency on the job market by offering a rich database of information to job seekers, education and training providers, business owners and government organizations.
The platform utilizes Artificial Intelligence (Al) technologies and cloud computing to expedite procedures and reduce government expenditure, saving time and effort.
A number of ministries and government entities will provide data to the ESP, which the IGA will review before adding to the platform.
