developed as part of the Initiatives of the Next 50. The initiative focuses on enhancing the competitiveness of the
UAE National cadres, encouraging them to work in the private sector, investing in available job opportunities in it,
and establishing and managing their own businesses projects/business that add a qualitative value to the national
economy.

Given the leading role of the United Arab Emirates Government and its vision that aims to support the country’s
citizens across all fields, the esteemed UAE Cabinet issued Resolution No. (30/7) of 2022 on the conditions and
controls for granting Entrepreneurship Leave for self-employment to UAE nationals working in the federal government.
The initiative relies on an innovative approach to introduce a special category of leaves that is granted under
specific conditions. The aim of this new leave category is to enable UAE nationals working in the federal government
to establish their own business in the private sector given the important role this sector plays in the economy.
This crucial step will play a key role in creating new jobs and drive future development.

Accordingly, the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources launched the guide for granting Ministries and
Federal entities their UAE National employees – who wish – an Entrepreneurship Leave for self-employment, which is
the first of its kind in the world, to encourage them to pursue investment and start their own businesses in the
private sector.
