Chairperson of the parliamentary Replacement and Employment Committee MP Khalil Al-Saleh has announced that last week’s meeting marks the beginning of the implementation of the replacement policy, reports Al-Rai daily.

Al-Saleh disclosed the plan laid down by the committee entails total replacement of expatriates in government bodies with Kuwaitis by 2023, reduce the number of expatriates employed in the private sector and retain those needed by the country. He said the “employment of expatriates in administration posts is no longer acceptable.”

He told the daily, “The committee has started implementing the plan. We will not stop until we see Kuwaitis occupying the employment market. He called on all concerned bodies to organize employment files and prepare plans to address loopholes which contributed to the rising unemployment rate among Kuwaitis.”

He also urged the concerned ministries, such as the Ministry of Higher Education, to set up a mechanism for overcoming challenges that prevent Kuwaitis from being employed like the academic output which does not suit the labor market. He emphasized the need to provide training for graduates to fulfill the requirements of the labor market.
