Tamkeen outlines operational blueprint
Manama, January 31, 2012
Bahrain's labour fund Tamkeen held its first stakeholder meeting with Bahrain-based media outlets to share and discuss its operational plan for 2012 as part of its commitment to transparency and closer stakeholder engagement.
During the meeting, Tamkeen senior management, headed by chief executive Mahmood Al Kooheji, went through the plan with representatives from Bahrain's key media outlets, followed by an open session for inquiries and feedback.
"Tamkeen has allocated BD107 million ($283.8 million) for various projects and programmes in 2012 which will serve more than 22,000 individuals and private sector enterprises," said Al Kooheji.
According to him, public consultations will take place over a period of two weeks, and will also include sessions with beneficiaries, service providers, partners, government agencies and legislative bodies.
The consultations will serve as an ideal platform for stakeholders to provide input and create a better understanding of Tamkeen's objectives, current and upcoming projects, processes, and role as a driver of economic growth and development in accordance with Economic Vision 2030.-TradeArabia News Service
