Move to replace 160,000 expatriates in Private sector with Kuwaitis

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

The governmental authorities are preparing a mechanism for the recruitment of 160,000 Kuwaitis in the private sector to replace with expatriates.

According to Al Anba daily report, authorities are planning this in cooperation with foreign and internal scholarship authorities and the mechanism will be applied within five years.

This will be a comprehensive and strategic mechanism for the replacement of expatriates with Kuwaitis in the technical and scientific fields.

The objective is to encourage Kuwaitis to pursue technical specializations that the local labor market needs, instead of literary and administrative studies.

Good news for those who will not fall into the category of 160,000 expats.

They will enjoy the following benefits:
1. Less traffic on the roads and less crowding in the Kuwaiti beaches.
2. Rent will be reduced considerably.
3. Market will be cheaper.
4. No parking problems for expats in Salmiya, Hawally, Farwaniya and all expats populated area.

Best of luck for those who can survive this onslaught!
God bless those 160,000 expats!

The first right for Kuwaitis to get the Jobs, but there are other several options to create jobs instead of grabbing jobs from Expats.
1- Bring investments
2- Create more jobs by offering attractive facilities to foreign companies into Kuwait
It will help the economy and boost the local market with more revenues.
