Special teams recommend steps to reduce the number of expatriates

Kuwait: As a result of demographic imbalances and delayed efforts to address demographics, the Council of Ministers has urged many relevant departments to prepare proposals and visions in this regard as a prelude to the formation of a specialized technical team. This professional technical team provides recommendations and practical steps to take immediate steps to reduce the number of expatriates in the country.

According to sources, the Civil Service Commission, Central Statistics Office Ireland, the Chamber of Commerce, and human-powered public authorities have been asked to minimize the number of foreign employees by the Council of Ministers on official circulation from the government sector. I was informed. With warnings for reward system appointments.

According to sources, the government is convinced that many problems have failed to meet its promise to address the demographic structure, especially the situation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. During the period, some problems were confused, creating obstacles and negatives in the labor sector. Many foreign workers have been stuck in their home countries for long periods of time, causing a domestic labor crisis, exacerbating the problem of resident offenders and demanding immediate corrective action.

The new government’s work program will directly include these corrective actions to address the issue of population imbalance, claiming to reduce the number of expatriates to 30 percent within 15 years. The program focuses on ensuring that a certain percentage of expatriates are reduced each year and eliminating excess marginal workforce until the target number is reached, sources said. ..

Government and officials say Kuwait has a population of nearly 5 million, 1.5 million are Kuwait and the rest are foreigners, so bring foreign workers to meet the needs of the market. Sources said the openness to things would not be expanded. Two million of them belong to a large number of human resources sectors that exceed the needs of the Kuwaiti market, suggesting that the problem is not a labor shortage, but a poor distribution. Authorities have a firm view that many sectors have an excess of labor and need to be removed.
