70% Of Private Sector Expat Employees ‘Not Qualified’

According to local daily Kuwait Times, 70% of expat employees in Kuwait’s private sector are not qualified, the country’s Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Economic Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh said on Sunday


According to the minister, the workers included in the percentage “do not have intermediate or university degrees” and need to be “filtered” through assessment mechanisms.

The high number comes after the Kuwait’s Public Authority for Manpower ran inspections on several companies operating in Kuwait during the Eid Al-Adha holiday and detected a “large number of violations.”

Statistics released by Kuwait’s Central Statistical Bureau up to the end of March 2018 showed that roughly 60 percent of expats employed in the private sector hold an intermediate degree, while less than 11 percent have university degrees.
