The Ministry of Social Affairs ended the road map yesterday for more than 2 million and 250 thousand migrant workers in light of developments in the situation of the newly created Crohn virus.
The Ministry of Social Affairs yesterday finalized the formation of a road map to address the imbalances in the demographics and presented some of the aforementioned issues to the labor ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council states at the meeting held via video call yesterday.
The events of the meeting revolve around very important points, as it focused on the measures and measures supposed to be taken after the emerging Corona virus as a benefit 19 and the need to take important decisions for all employment or reduce employment that has overwhelmed all sectors in the Gulf states.
One of the most important points that were emphasized is that most of the expatriate labor or the vast majority are marginal, non-technical, and violating the residency law, thus straining all sectors and representing a burden on the states of the Cooperation Council, and thus everyone resort to violating the law.
In a related context, related sources stated to Al-Rai newspaper that the Gulf Cooperation Council countries praised what Kuwait provided to all workers, and the ministers decided after reviewing all comprehensive and extensive studies that simulate the Gulf reality that relied heavily on expatriates during the past three decades.
The ministers stated that relying on this employment has negative effects that affected its economic, security and social reality that exhausted all sectors, and also pointed out that the Gulf labor ministers confirmed that Corona revealed things that were not taken into account, which was the refusal of some countries to receive their citizens even though they violated the residence law.
The sources stressed that the plan that laid down the quota system, which will be applied strictly, especially to some communities, whose citizens have already been proven to be violating the residency law and refuse to comply with the law and that their countries refuse to receive them, knowing that the majority of employment is marginal, non-technical, and lacking professionalism.
Migrant workers "affairs" lay out a road map
The sources pointed out that the plan is divided into a short-term plan and a long-term plan, and a short-term plan begins immediately after the breakthrough of the Corona crisis and will be from three months to less than a year, and implemented as follows the deportation of 250 thousand expatriates because they violate the residence laws and those whose contracts end in government ministries.
Finally, the long-term plan will be implemented within 5 years and aims to dispense with two million and 250 thousand expatriates and implement the quota system so that the largest community does not exceed 25 percent of the number of expatriates, where the proportion of Kuwaitis after five years reaches 50 percent.
