This paper uses a combination of secondary and primary data to provide a
more comprehensive analysis of education, training and skill development
policies in the Gulf countries. Different from earlier studies an
interesting element in our analysis is that we discuss both the supply
and demand sides of educational policies in the Gulf countries. A novel
element in our study is that we present and compare the macro and micro
views/perspectives concerning plans and policies implemented to improve
skill upgrading through: enhancing educational system, provision of
training, transfer of knowledge/external schooling effect, using the
macro and firm surveys (2002) data.

Keywords: Education; training; skill; skill upgrading policies; Gulf countries
