The talks reviewed the experience of the two countries in labour and vocational training in terms of the mechanisms used in labour market regulation and programmes that contribute to the employment of citizens through legislation, regulations and labour laws to achieve harmonisation between supply and demand of the national workforce, in addition to the experience of the two countries in vocational training and the nature of training programmes needed by the labour market to keep pace with the developments at all levels.

The two sides also reviewed the experience of their countries in self-employment and entrepreneurship through specialised programmes in support and funding, encouragement of national manpower to take advantage of these programmes and establishment of small and medium-sized enterprises of their own.
