Kuwait is not a destination for migration - MP Al-Kandari

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

MP Abdulkareem Al-Kandari said that the talk concerning expats was not out of ‘racism’ and we are only after regulation. While speaking in a seminar titles ‘Demographic Imbalances, Effects and Solutions’, MP Kandari emphasized that Kuwait is not a destination for migration like Europe and is a rich country attracting expats for work rather than immigration.

He said that 70 percent of Kuwaitis are young and the demographic problems do not only lie in the number of expats, but also in the inability to control these numbers and the pressure they are causing on various services.

“The fact that 24 percent of jobs in the public sector are occupied by expats is a problem, while 17,000 citizens are unemployed,” he noted, adding that expats make up
71 percent of the private sector’s workforce.

He also said that as the state has so far unable to provide decent public transport means, many expats prefer getting driving licenses to drive their own vehicles, and thus the streets are congested.

Nobody in the world of expats will ever think to migrate to Kuwait as how the MP puts it..That's a joke of the day!!! Expats have come to Kuwait to earn bread, not because of its natural beauty or climate. Becoz of Kuwait's higher currency value expats live and earn to support their families who are in this country and also in their home country. Once the value of KD comes down, then you will notice most of the expats will start packing their bags. Kuwaitis are not willing to do the jobs which expats do, so naturally they are without jobs. Kuwaitis are only willing to do jobs which suits their prestige, so why this MP is crying, moreover the Kuwait Govt. is providing Social Security and other allowances for Kuwaitis who are jobless and with children.

Partly agreed with MP . You are right to say that Kuwait is not the destination for migration like Europe except.. ((Only Mallus and bohris do not think so.))
But blaming expats for traffic congestion and public sector jobs is totally wrong.
80% Traffic problem is due to wrong school timings. When no arabic school no traffic issue.

Those 17,000 kuwaiti's may not be qualified enough to do the job occupied by 24% expats in Public Sector,
whereas, those 71% of private workforce jobs are of low categories that by doing it, a kuwaiti might lose his dignity.
We don't want them to lose their pride.
Mr. MP,
we don't have problem,
they don't have problem,
why you have problem?
