The Abu Dhabi School of Government (ADSG) is continuing its ongoing investment in human capital with the launch of its latest programme to upskill government employees from across the emirate. The new “Abu Dhabi Public Exchange programme” will identify high-potential government employees to join projects with Abu Dhabi government entities as well as leading private sector companies to enable knowledge exchange, skills transfer, and enhance collaboration between the public and private sector.
The programme is offering Emirati nationals an array of highly professional, multi-cultural work environments that will provide them with greater exposure to a range of national, regional, and international businesses and projects that are currently operating from Abu Dhabi.
ADSG identified the talents who started the programme and will engage with government and private sector companies on projects and gain greater insight into their specialisms, before they return to their entities and utilise those skills in the development process for Abu Dhabi.
Participants have been selected based on their skills and capabilities, ensuring they will maximise the development opportunities from the programme. Successful participants have went through rigorous assessments stages to be accepted in the programme.

There were 11 government entities and some international organisations and consultancies such as Oliver Wayman and PWC, which are well known international consultancies in the region. The programme contains building government capabilities in three distinct disciplines which are consultancy expertise, technical and digital expertise and industry specific expertise such as tourism, culture, health and municipalities and transport.
Dr. Nama Salmeen Al Ameri, Dean of Abu Dhabi School of Government: “ADSG’s latest programme will ensure we are training some of the best UAE Nationals. It will give government employees exposure to different multi-cultural environments, across a wide array of industries in Abu Dhabi’s economy. ADSG believes it will be an essential part of their ongoing development, providing unrivalled opportunities to learn on the front line of leading and effectively managing governmental projects.
