Kuwait will hire foreign workers, including from Bangladesh, to cover demand in a number of sectors, says the country’s First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

A recent article published by Kuwait Times disclosed the matter, adding that the country’s human resources authority has been directed to coordinate with the Kuwaiti foreign ministry in this regard.

The move is being implemented as part of efforts to mitigate Kuwait’s “Population Imbalance Problem,” and to cover the need for workers in the country’s key sectors.

According to that article, a delegation from the Philippines will visit Kuwait at the end of May to discuss the possibility of exporting workers for some selected sectors in the country.

If the subsequent discussion proves fruitful, Kuwait’s Public Authority of Manpower may begin taking manpower from the Philippines again.

Kuwait has also launched a process to bring in nurses from Bangladesh and India, who will be appointed in newly launched and existing healthcare centres.
